Science Café

The STFK Science Café is a local chapter of the NOVA Science Cafés community and has been meeting monthly since April, 2011 to promote science interest and education. We begin each meeting by watching a 10-minute NOVA video about a science topic. This is followed by a Q&A discussion in which attendees have their questions answered by a guest scientist. This is a casual, fun, engaging dialog for adults and mature teenagers. Beginning February, 2019, the STFK Science Café is co-sponsored by Spirit and Truth Fellowship of Knoxville (David Spakes, Pastor) and Associated Professionals Think Tank (David Fox, 865-803-2887).

Children age 5-12 are welcome at attend with their parents, and we will keep them busy at Kid's Café with a science lesson and activities that help make learning science fun!

Please RSVP by sending an e-mail message to Let us know how many adults and children are in your group.

Please make plans to attend! If you have any questions, we have a special e-mail address set up,

A Message from Our Guest Presenter

Here is information about an upcoming series of free events on UT's campus that I'm coordinating. If you think your Science Cafe contacts would be interested, could you please share the following message?

The University of Tennessee hosts one of the longest running Darwin Days in the United States. Darwin Day is a weeklong celebration to spark conversations about the discoveries and legacy of Charles Darwin and evolutionary biology.

We have a couple of free, upcoming events on campus which are open to all!

1) Presentation by Alan Templeton, human geneticist and Professor Emeritus
at Washington University: 

                "Do Human Races Exist? The Answer From Modern Genetics" 
                               February 13, 2019 at 6pm
                       Cox Auditorium (Alumni Memorial Building)

2) Darwin birthday party, a family-friendly event with games and activities, a
dinosaur fossil dig, cake and punch, guided tours, and a photo booth with Darwin! 

                          February 16th, 2019 from 1:30-4pm
