Café Scientifique is a forum for debating science issues and promoting public engagement with science. Audiences consist of people who are interested in science but generally never have the opportunity to discuss their views with, and ask questions of, someone "in the know".
Meetings generally start with a short talk from the speaker, who is usually a scientist or a writer on science, followed by a short break for drinks. This is followed by a session of about an hour for questions and answers and general discussion. Cafés are free although a voluntary contribution may be asked for to cover any expenses. (It does not pay fees to a speaker).
Meetings take place once a month on the second Tuesday of each month, starting at 7.30pm.
Next Meeting: Tuesday 11th June
Place: The Conference Room, Hope Street Hotel
Title: Science from the Aether
There is a vast amount of scientific information that can be found via the internet. This meeting is an opportunity to share what you have learnt about science from logging on, what others have learnt, and to briefly look at some websites that have been of interest. This will be an open forum event and there will be no official speaker. (Do we need speakers now?) Any topic that is open to scientific investigation will be of relevance, or even thinking about science and how it works.
