Cafes Scientifique are informal and lively discussion events around contemporary science issues that take place in local bars, cafes and pubs. Taking place on the first Tuesday of every month, we feature a variety of local scientists and engineers, talking about their work and how it affects the average person in the street. Always fun, sometimes controversial, these events are a great way to get to the heart of the matter.

Thinktank has recently launched an adult Outreach service. We currently provide cognitive stimulation sessions such as reminiscence or handling collections to Nursing and Care homes but the activities are suitable for any group of adults that would like to handle some of the museum collections in their own environment.
