Virtual Café Sci

Our Virtual Café Sci programme is supported by funding from FEAST Cornwall

For the COVID 19 era and beyond, the Cornwall Science Community now launches something we had long intended to do: we are taking the Cafe Scientifique on-line.

From mid-April 2020, we are running monthly talks, using live streaming software ( Zoom), to bring the public engagement and participation approach of the Cafe Sci out of Falmouth – where we have been running talks for some years, at the Poly – and making these talks available to anyone with an internet connection, anywhere in Cornwall.

For a short (7 minute) video that explain the idea, take a look at ‘The Virtual Cafe Sci; Keep Fit Exercises for the Brain‘, which you will find on our (new) YouTube channel, HERE.

Entry to all talks will be via Eventbrite (for security), and you can sign up there to receive regular notification of all talks in the programme, HERE.

The Talks

Read on for our upcoming talk, or visit the Archive to find past talks, including links to their recordings on YouTube.


Our Virtual Café Sci talks are entirely free to attend. Should you wish to donate any amount, the proceeds will be split by 25% to Cornwall Science Community towards the running of these and similar events, and 75% to a designated charity.
