  • the early makers of the modern bow from Tourte through Peccatte (circa 1770-1860),
  • the middle period, Voirin to Sartory (circa 1860-1930),
  • the demise of bow making and the last of the great French school (circa 1930-1960), and
  • the new era of bow making (circa 1960-2012).

Science Café of Olympia meets each month on the second Tuesday. It provides an informal atmosphere where people with and without scientific background can meet to deepen their understanding of interesting topics in science and technology. After a presentation by an expert in the field, the meetings are opened for discussion. Science Cafés are found nationwide and are loosely affiliated with the U.K.-based Cafe Scientifique, an international organization promoting public engagement with science.

Some of the organizers of Science Café of Olympia are affiliated with the Puget Sound Chapter of The American Chemical Society.
Send us your comments and suggestions on topics, speakers and how we can improve our meetings. Feel free to pass this notice on to like-minded friends.
