Cafés des Sciences
Cafés des Sciences create opportunities for children to engage in interactive workshops on important contemporary scientific issues. The Café brings together around 50-80 pupils and focuses on a particular cutting-edge scientific topic, with input from OIBC scientists, many of whom are leading scientists in their field. The pupils are provided with the research topic beforehand to carry out some prep work, which includes each school/group of participating pupils producing in advance a poster on the topic.
Programmes can be tailored to suit children at Key Stage 2, 3 or 4
The programme was officially launched on Saturday 24 November 2007, at St Edward’s School Oxford, by Prof Richard Dawkins.
