KUAR FM89.1 Call-in Radio Show

Prior to each Science Café, moderator Dorothy Graves, PhD, hosts a companion radio call-in show on NPR-affiliate station KUAR FM89.1 from 6:05-6:30pm. It is a casual conversation between Dorothy and one of the evening’s panelists offering radio listeners the same opportunity given to the café audience – direct access to an expert to learn more about a science topic and the opportunity to ask questions. Since beginning the radio show in 2008, Dorothy has interviewed more than 45 guests on the monthly program. (Science Café Little Rock does not air in December, July or August.)

Science Supplies

We collect surplus lab supplies and distribute them to small schools with very small or nonexistent science supply budgets. Science teachers in need of supplies may inquire via the Science cafe email address. Please include your location, school size, and contact information. We also need a list of what you actually need to compare with the supplies we have.

Scientific Posters

Science cafe offers scientific posters by research faculty members at UAMS and other Arkansas academic institutions to high school science teachers for their classrooms. These posters are big (4’x4′ to 4’x6′). Click here for a list of available posters. If you would like to get posters for your classroom, please send an email to the Science Cafe email address (sciencecafelr@gmail.com) with Posters in the subject line.

[Note: If you are a scientist and interested in donating posters to this Science Cafe outreach, please contact Linda Williams at sciencecafelr@gmail.com.] Thanks!
