Win cafe Sci: "Hands are handy things"

Tonight's Cafe Sci in Winchester will be lead by Dr Cheryl Metcalfe who is a Lecturer in Biomechanics and a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Southampton. 

Much of her research is working at the interface between engineering and rehabilitation. She has investigated the relationship between movement and function of the wrist and hand, focusing on investigating the differences in wrist movements and hand function between unimpaired and chronic stroke participants. @CherylMetcalf

The Discovery Centre will be open for at least half an hour before the talk which starts at 7.45pm, so you can get yourself a drink and have a chat with other participants. The discussions will aim to finish around 9.15pm, though everyone will be welcome to stay around and have a chat with the speaker afterwards.

There is no charge for admission, but donations towards speakers expenses are welcome.  If anybody would like to help with the running of the Winchester Café Sci, please speak to the organizer William Vine on the evening.

The format of the evening is usually a talk of 30 to 40 minutes, followed by a short break so the audience can refill their glasses, before questions and discussions about the talk.   Entry is open to everyone, but we do encourage you to buy a tea, coffee  and cakes to show your support for the Discovery Centre who sponsor the meeting by providing the venue.

Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore and debate the latest ideas in science and technology.

Hosted by: William Vine, Organizer for Winchester Cafe Scientifique
