Cafe Scientifique is a chance to hear about a scientist’s latest work and ask them questions for the price of a coffee or a glass of wine, taking science out of the academic setting.
Our first Wellington Cafe Scientifique speaker for 2019 was Upulie Divisekera.
We gathered at the Arborist in Wellington to hear Upulie talk about what happens in cells and materials at the molecular level or the nanoscale, and how can we use these properties to make new things. She also discussed why dinosaurs are a passion of hers.
Questions ranged from the grey goo problem, to holograms, to social media.
Thank you to our supporters, the Wellington Branch of the Royal Society Te Apārangi, and the Arborist.
