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 Bournemouth University researcher 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). Since September 2020, we have been 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.

Sweet Talk – how we feel about sweet foods, sweeteners and sugar

Claudia Tang
Tuesday 6 April

Is sugar the enemy in your diet? What about sweet-tasting foods in general? The way we think about eating sugary foods can be affected by how we view the alternatives; eating low-calorie sweeteners or avoiding sweet foods altogether. BU researcher Claudia Tang asked the public how they feel about sugar, sugar alternatives and policies like the sugar tax. Join us to explore how we feel about sweet tastes, reveal common (mis)beliefs and discover how you can play a part in new research.
