Cafe Scientifique

Cafe Scientifique

Café Scientifique is a place where anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. 

Enjoy listening to a short talk from a guest speaker before engaging in debate and discussion around the topic. You can find out more about the international sensation that is Cafe Scientifique by looking at their website.

In Bournemouth, we run every first Tuesday of the month (with the odd exception). From September, we will be running events online through Zoom.

This activity is recognised under the Global Talent Programme and allows attending students to gain credit towards their Global Talent Award.

Upcoming events

We’ll be joined by Dr Christina Stantis on Tuesday 6 October from 7.00pm until 8.30pm.

Ancient texts recount an invasion of ancient Egypt by the Hyksos, sweeping in from the northeast on chariots with innovative bronze weaponry, but is that what really happened? Modern archaeological techniques are changing the way we view this enigmatic 15th Dynasty of ancient Egypt – the first time Egypt came under foreign rule. Join us to discover how scientific research at BU is revealing an ancient, interconnected world.
