Beverley Science Cafe

Every month, experts from the Faculty of Science meet with the local community to discuss interesting areas of science at the Beverley Science Café. For the price of a cup of coffee, anyone can explore the latest ideas in science and technology.

Mark LorchOrganised by Dr Mark Lorch in the Department of Chemistry, the Beverley Science Café offers a fantastic opportunity for the local community to learn about a specialist area with an expert in their field.

Dr Mark Lorch says: “This is an exciting opportunity for anyone interested in science to come and hear about the subject in an informal and relaxed setting.”

Discussions involve a wide range of topics from GM crops and human health, to understanding the evolution of language.

Sponsored by the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Beverley Science Café is one of over forty café scientifiques across the country who meets regularly for scientists to discuss their work with a diverse local audience. The first cafés scientifiques in the UK were held in Leeds in 1998 and quickly spread across the country.

The format of the evening is based on other successful cafés and includes an informal presentation for around 20 minutes with a guest speaker, followed by an opportunity for questions and an open discussion.

The evening takes place on the last Wednesday of every month. The event is held at the King’s Head on Saturday Market Square in Beverley and is free to attend.
