Coffee and Science
Date & times

Coffee & Science Zaterdag

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.
