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). Since September, 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.

Upcoming events

We’ll be joined by Dr Sarah Elliott on Tuesday 1 December from 7.00pm until 8.30pm.

Around twelve thousand years ago in the Middle East, the course of human civilisation changed forever - human hunter-gatherers became fully-fledged farmers, trading their small campsites for settled villages. But why? Why did it happen there and why then? Archaeological evidence is often limited or poorly preserved, so researcher Dr Sarah Elliott is looking closer, studying the microscopic traces people and animals left behind to try to solve one of the great mysteries of human history.
