However, anyone with a venue, a speaker and a marketing plan can start a science cafe. On the sciencecafe.org website, an interactive map shows the location of cafes across the United States and around the globe from Islamabad, Pakistan, to Antwerp, Belgium, to the Hawaiian islands.
Some cafes have even cropped up in bookstores, theaters and high school campuses.
