Science - Science joins coffee culture

23rd January 2009 at 00:00

The public has the chance to engage with scientists in the heart of Aberdeen.

Cafe Scientifique was launched earlier this month as an informal public forum in Aberdeen for discussing the latest topics in science and technology. Organised by the university's public engagement team, it will be hosted one night a month from January to October in the Costa Coffee cafe of Waterstone's Union Bridge branch.

Speakers include Kelley Swain, author of Darwin's Microscope; John Parnell, department of geology and petroleum, Aberdeen Univeristy, who will be delivering a down-to-earth lecture bridging evolution and the space programme; and Harry McArdle, of the university's Rowett Institute, who will be busting the myths surrounding dietary supplements.

There is no need to book and entry is open to all. Each event will kick off at 7pm with a short introduction by the guest speaker.
