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.

Improving children’s mental health through movement

Dr Ashok Patnaik

Tuesday 5 October 2021

The COVID-19 pandemic has worsened children’s mental health, which was already in decline. Researchers have observed increased levels of anxiety, depression and other psychological distress. However, children with poor mental health do not always receive the support they need from schools and mental health services.

Stormbreak is a new programme that combines simple, fun movements with well-being techniques such as talking therapies and mindfulness, to help children care for their mental health. Join us to discover what happened when Stormbreak was trialled in several local schools, and where it could go next.
