The Belfast Science Cafe brings scientific debate to the pub. It is based on 'Cafe Scientifique', held all over the UK. The Cafe is a place where, with a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore, debate and discuss the latest ideas in science and technology.
During a Cafe a scientist is invited to talk on any scientific topic of their choice. The talk lasts for fifteen to thirty minutes; after which there is a small break for the audience to grab a pint and some food. There follows a session of questions and answers, or debate, where the speaker can be quizzed or challenged.
