The University of Aberdeen host a larges and varied Community Cafe discussion series - now we’ve successfully branched out to schools with Cafe Jr.
Cafe Jr Aberdeen is an innovative programme connecting pupils to researchers and local research. Many benefits are associated with bringing researchers into your school, including enhancement of the teaching programme and experience.
Researchers are will deliver a short interactive talk, in a relaxed and informal environment (such as a social space/ canteen/ library), and invite pupils to join in a lively discussion.
Topics can be chosen by pupils, or to enhance the curriculum. We also encourage and support pupils who wish to organise the Cafes Jrs for their schools- this scheme is designed to develop leadership and organisational skills in pupils.
If you would like Cafe Jr to come to your school please contact us.
