Bristol science café

What is Science Café?
The format is simple: The invited speaker gives a short introduction to the evening’s topic; then we take a break for refreshments and pondering, followed by an hour of questions and discussion. Everyone is welcome to ask a question or make a comment - it's a fantastic opportunity to debate and contemplate often-controversial issues with leading experts in their field.
You don’t need to be a scientist to enjoy the evening! Just come with an open and enquiring mind (and some spare change for a drink).

Science Café is based on the international organisation Café Scientifique. To find out what other groups are up to in the UK and around the world – click here for the National Café Scientifique website.
