"ASK A SCIENTIST" SPEAKER SERIES BEGINS


Minnesota Sea Grant is reviving the popular Café Scientifique speaker series with ASK A SCIENTIST café discussions in Grand Marais and Duluth. This month, UMD's Large Lakes Observatory/Physics Department researcher Jay Austin addresses Lake Superior's warming trend.

Austin and his colleagues recently attracted national attention when they reported that Lake Superior is warming about twice as fast as the air around it. Austin will discuss his work and the relationships among ice cover, air temperature, wind speed, and water temperature on:

Tuesday, April 3, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.
Blue Water Café
On the harbor, Grand Marais, MN

Wednesday, April 4, 7 to 8 p.m.
Amazing Grace Bakery and Café
Canal Park, Duluth, MN

All café discussions are free and will take place on the first Tuesday and Wednesday of each month.

ASK A SCIENTIST encourages people to talk about ideas in science and technology with researchers. Inspired by the internationally successful Café Scientifique and backed by NovaScience Now, Minnesota Sea Grant invites youths and adults to join the discussions. Expect games, prizes, and to experience the thrill of discovery. Visit www.seagrant.umn.edu/news for more information.
