GO-Science has partnered with East Carolina University, Sigma Xi, North Carolina's Eastern Region, and the North Carolina Biotechnology Center to develop Science Café programming.

A Science Café is a way to help the public connect with science in a relaxed exchange of information and ideas that brings together scientists and lay people at an accessible venue. It puts the public on an equal footing with scientists to discuss current research and its implications.

GO-Science, a non-profit organization established to bring informal science education programs to the public through interactive hands-on experiences, recently announced the development of a Science Center in Greenville, N.C. Currently, GO-Science offers over 10 core programs that reach over 20 thousand participants annually in over 30 counties throughout North Carolina.
