13 May - A Taste of Molecules with Diane Fresquez, BSB Swoosh Lounge
Journalist and author Diane Fresquez will join us to explore her new book : “A Taste of Molecules: In Search of the Secrets of Flavour.” In writing this diverting volume Diane Fresquez undertook a journey of the senses through Belgium and beyond and has produced an entertaining blend of food stories, memoir and recipes with a gentle helping of science.

Join us in tasting some of the flavours explored in the book and getting more in touch with the science behind favourite flavours and cooking.

15 - 18 May - Shell Energy Lab, Rotterdam
The Shell Energy Lab is coming to Rotterdam in mid-May. The Shell Energy Lab is an interactive experience for visitors to Shell Eco-marathon. With active challenges, learning experiences, and amazing technology the Lab explores the future of energy and gives an insight on what the world of tomorrow might look like!
This event is free, spectacular and surprising and seems to come with a free Lego racing car!

1 October - Bioenergetic Constraints on the Origin and Evolution of Life, Dr Nick Lane, University College London
