CafeSci-Basingstoke: Science & Tech Public Talks Pages

Hello & welcome to the Basingstoke Cafe Scientifique Group!

I'm Bob, the group organizer. Cafe Scientifique has over 40 groups running in the UK and is a forum for the discussion of current work and interesting issues in the world of science and technology.

Cafe Scientifique is a great way to explore and debate a wide range of issues relating to science and technology with other like minded people. The discussions at Cafe Scientifique aim to be both informal and accessible. Speakers are there to be questioned and talk about their work at all levels.

All our meetings are free. The travel expenses for the speakers at Basingstoke Cafe Scientifique are paid for by our sponsors, the Thames Valley Branch of the British Science Association.

Cafes start with a short talk (usually about twenty minutes) by the speaker, to introduce the topic. After this there is usually a short break to allow glasses to be refilled and conversations to start. This is followed by an hour or so of questions and answers and general discussion. Anyone can ask a question, and we positively welcome those which begin "This might be a stupid question, but ..." These questions are invariably not stupid and often rather insightful.

Cafes Scientifique in Basingstoke is held in The Tea Bar, 9-13 London Street, Basingstoke RG21 7NT in the Top of Town area. The debates are held on the last Monday month in the evening from 7.30pm until around 9.00pm. Have a look at the "Links" menu on our web site at:

All Cafes Scientifique welcome suggestions from the audience about their programmes. If you want to find out more about a particular topic, go along to your local Cafe Scientifique group and suggest it to the organizers.
