Aspen Science Center


The Aspen Science Center is privileged to host the Physics Cafés ahead of the Aspen Center for Physics’ Nick & Maggie DeWolf Foundation free Winter Lecture series.  Each year, from January through March, the Aspen Center for Physics hosts accomplished physicists for six to eight one-week winter conferences.  These conferences are a chance for physicists to collaborate on the latest developments in the core physics areas of the Center.  The public is invited to attend both the Aspen Center for Physics winter lecture series and the Aspen Science Center Physics Cafés for free.

The Physics Cafés are an informal, yet informative, talk with visiting physicists that allows the audience to hear them discuss their work and current research interests, to describe what initially attracted them to physics as a career and perhaps any advice they might have for young people thinking about pursuing studies in physics, through a moderated Q&A format conversation.

The Physics Cafes take place from 4:30 p.m.—5:20 p.m. in the Wheeler Opera House Bar Lobby on Wednesdays ahead of the Aspen Center for Physics Nick & Maggie DeWolf Foundation Lecture. There is no charge for admission.  The Wheeler Opera House is located at: 320 E Hyman Ave, Aspen, CO 81611.
