What we're about

Basingstoke Science & Climate Cafe is a place where anyone is welcome to explore the latest ideas in science, technology and climate change. We encourage our members and attendees to donate the price of a coffee towards our speakers expenses, administration and web site costs.

We aim to host regular Science, Technology and Climate Change public talks and discussions at the Red Lion Hotel Bar in London Street. These events include a mix of live speakers plus discussion of the event topic in a follow-on Q&A session.  The live speakers are experts in their field invited from local companies and academic centres and are specialists in the subjects under discussion.

We also publicise in our calendar the details of many live-stream public talks from the likes of TED.com, The Royal Institution, The Royal Society and other Cafe Scientifique groups. Booking for these online talks is often handled outside this meetup group, so please read the event instructions carefully.

Everyone is welcome to attend this Meetup groups events free of charge. Basingstoke Science & Climate Cafe is a not-for-profit group organised by Meet-Basingstoke.ivc.org.uk. Join this meetup group to receive email notifications via Meetup of any science and technology talks, debates and lectures that we hear about.

SUMMARY
Michael Brooks is a bestselling science writer, the author of The Quantum Astrologer’s Handbook and co-host of the Eureka podcast with Rick Edwards.

Praised as ‘a wonder’ by Tim Harford, his book The Maths That Made Us, is a fascinating journey through the history of civilisation that shows why maths is fundamental to our understanding of the world.

Michael has the power to change how a whole room feels about maths, and can deliver an entertaining talk where he reveals the fascinating stories from the book – like how accounting started the French Revolution or how calculus won the Allies the Second World War – inspiring a new love and appreciation of maths for those who think they hate it.

The Maths that Made Us comes out in September

SPEAKER
Michael Brooks

We will open the meeting from 7:00pm so people can settle in, chat etc. There will be a break between talk and Q&A when people can chat etc. It's not the same as live but closer than I thought

A recording will be available after the event on YouTube.

The Winchester Cafe Sci Facebook Group provides an opportunity to share ideas and keep in touch. You are encouraged to post interesting science links and to comment or discuss.:
