Morehead's current science awareness program, Carolina Science Cafe, is a FREE monthly educational program for adults, offering a behind-the-scenes look at cutting-edge research. You don't need to register ... just show up!

Each Carolina Science Cafe features an expert presentation and informal discussion. Listen, share and learn! These unique programs are held at Top of the Hill restaurant's "Back Bar," offering a relaxed environment to explore fascinating science topics. (Beverages are available from Top of the Hill's menu, and free appetizers -- while they last -- are provided by Sigma Xi.)

Carolina Science Cafe is presented by the North Carolina Science Festival, which Morehead founded and administers. Ongoing program support for Carolina Science Cafe is provided by Top of the Hill and by Sigma Xi. Morehead thanks these contributors for supporting science education.
