Demonstrations and lectures in Serious Science Café

18 December 2012


It is the time for Serious Request 2012, where you can find scientists from the University of Twente in the Serious Science Café in the square in front of the Zuidmolen in Enschede. In the special domed tent, the UT and Saxion Enschede will be doing their best to promote science. Of course, they will be focusing particularly on the theme of infant mortality. All the proceeds will go to Serious Request.

There will be a range of demonstrations, workshops and lectures in the Science Café from Wednesday 19 December to Sunday 23 December. On the first day, Prof. Rob Lammertink will be one of the speakers representing the University of Twente. His talk about water at the interface is part of the theme of sustainability.
The other days will be devoted to the themes of health (lecture by Prof. Leon Terstappen about detecting HIV in blood), reducing infant mortality (Prof. Monique L'Hoir, cot death), Nanotechnology (lectures by Prof. Dave Blank, Prof. Harold Zandvliet and Prof. Hans Hilgenkamp).
The final Sunday will be devoted to Science on Tour. The programme will be combined with musical entertainment and the Solar Team will also give a demonstration.
Students will be scouting the streets of central Enschede on Segways, dressed in special science outfits, in order to interest people in a visit to the Science Café.

The Serious Science Café is open from Wednesday to Friday from 14:00 to 21:00, Saturday from 10:00 to 18:00 and on Sunday from 12:00 to 17:00.
