Coffee and Science
Date & times

Coffee & Science Donderdag

Black. A touch of cream. A scoop of sugar. Coffee has become a true art form for some people.

Young researchers will show you the science behind a cup of coffee in just three minutes. What can this everyday commodity tell us about quantum mechanics, bullying, plant species in the Caribbean, the art of Arab printing and plant creation? After you find out, you can join the scientists for a coffee and a chat. Ask them anything you like, just make sure your coffee doesn’t get cold.

Physics and Caffeine

The film Physics and Caffeine is screened during each edition of Coffee & Science. Four physicists explain key concepts from the field of physics using a simple cup of coffee.

Today you can have coffee with:

Hayat Ahlili, Utrecht University, Faces of Science: Why did the art of book printing as long as it did to flourish in the Arabic world?

Tim de Jongh, Radboud University: Quantum mechanics, how does it work? 

Lilian Vloet, HAN: How can you involve elders in decision making when it comes to treatments at the Intensive Care? 

Jetske Vaas, Utrecht University, Faces of Science: Hoe do we manage invasive and foreign plant species in the Dutch Caribbeans. 

Johan Mentink, Radboud University, Famelab: What  exactly is magnetism and how do we use it?
