THOMASVILLE, Ga. (WTXL) -- Here's your chance to sit back, relax... and enjoy some science!

Thomas University is again hosting some specials chats as part of its Science Café.

The idea is creating a low-key forum for sitting down with scientists, and picking their brains about current science topics.

Organizers say, "What happens when you mix interesting topics, scientists and eager learners? Lively conversation! That’s the formula for Thomas University’s Science Café, sponsored by the Division of Education."

On the schedule for the Spring 2016 sessions:

- January 26: Susan Cerulean presents "Living on the Edge: What Florida’s Gulf Coast Islands Teach Us about our Changing Planet"

- February 23:  Dr. Jeff Chanton, Florida State University and the John Widmer Winchester Professor of Oceanography present "What is Environmental Biogeochemistry?"

- March 29: Dr. Jimmie L. Davis Jr., chairman of the MITRE Corporation, and educator Michael Singletary present "What Does STEM Mean to You?"

Each session is held at the Thomas University Campus Center, from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.

Those involved say because of the Cafés’ popularity, some talks have been standing room only, so they recommend you get there early. 

It's free to take part and all are invited. Light snack and beverages are provided, or there's a  Science Café dinner special for $5.
