The Science Café, hosted by UNH faculty member Cameron Wake, provides a unique opportunity for Seacoast residents to feed their minds with contemporary science in the relaxed atmosphere of a pub. The discussions, which are free and open to all, are held once a month on Wednesday evenings in the Portsmouth Brewery’s Jimmy LaPanza Lounge from 6-8 pm.  Doors open at 5 p.m. for food and drinks.

Tom Kelly is the founding director of UNH's Sustainability Institute and the UNH chief sustainability officer.  Kelly collaborates with faculty, staff, students and others in the development of curriculum, operations, research and engagement policies, practices and initiatives related to UNH's four educational initiatives in biodiversity, climate, culture, and food.
