Our goal in Athens Science Café is to facilitate a connection between the scientific community of Athens, GA and the Athens community at large. In order to achieve this, we abide by the following tenets:

1. Athens Science Cafés are conversations and not lectures. Therefore, we strive to facilitate a dialogue between scientists and the community. This dialogue will be multi-directional so that both the audience and speaker learn from each other.

2. The Athens Science Café desires to reach a diverse group of Athenians. To do this, we tailor café topics for our audience based on community feedback and hold free events at accessible community venues.

3. The Athens Science Café will continuously work to connect a multitude of organizations and the community through our cafés, website, and social media.

4. The Athens Science Café will promote the work of its sister organization, the Athens Science Observer, through its various advertising platforms.
