Science Cafes

Science Cafes

Science Cafes have been around for a while but the network is constantly growing. Cafe Scientifique is an international organisation that has spearheaded the concept in the UK, USA, Asia and Australasia. Experts on an array of scientific subjects such as evolution, global warming, the Big Bang theory speak to an audience at a venue outside of the traditional academic context, often in cafes but can they can also be in bars, restaurants and movie theatres, often once a month.  People get to freely debate in a relaxed, informal setting and these events also allows cafe owners to offer a calendar of events to promote throughout the year.  The concept has even spread to schools  where students can  get to hear a speaker outside the normal classroom setting and therefore enabling them to learn about science in a whole new way.  We reckon the concept could spread to other topics outside of science and enable people with common interests to get together and share their ideas in a fun way.
