Food and drink round up (04-03-10)

Scientists debate fatness in a great place for chips

Published on March 4th 2010.


Food and drink round up (04-03-10)

Cafe Scientifique is back in Liverpool, at the Hope Street Hotel on the second Tuesday of every month. The next one is on March 9.

Cafe Scientifique is a place where, for the price of a cup of coffee or a glass of wine, anyone can come to explore the latest ideas in science and technology. Meetings have taken place in cafes, bars, restaurants and even theatres, but always outside a traditional academic context – and judging by the name – outside a traditional English spelling.

The first Cafes Scientifiques in the UK were held in Leeds in 1998. From there, cafes gradually spread across the country. Currently, some forty or so cafes meet regularly to hear scientists or writers on science talk about their work and discuss it with diverse audiences.

This coming Tuesday Gareth Stratton, Professor of Paediatric Exercise Science, Liverpool John Moores University, will discuss: “The road to an active and healthy childhood, from fitness to fatness and back again”. There will, of course, be chips all round from the Carriage Works kichen, as the scientists chew this one over.
