Pint of Science is coming to town, 14-16 May
11 April 2018
Public Engagement - news
The annual celebration of all that is fascinating and wonderful science - in a pub - returns to Oxford, with a plethora of speakers across six locations.
"Pint of Science is a non-profit organisation that brings some of the most brilliant scientists to your local pub to discuss their latest research and findings with you."
The events aim to be informal and stimulating for the audience, with short talks and the opportunity for Q&A. Each venue's talks focus on a particular theme, e.g., Beautiful Mind (neuroscience, psychology and psychiatry), Atoms to Galaxies (physics, chemistry, maths, astronomy) and Planet Earth (geosciences, plant sciences, zoology) for example.
It's worth going along, clearly for the very engaging talks, but also if you're thinking about doing some public speaking, then this is worth thinking about - so go along and show your support, and be inspired and learn from your peers, all in the comfort of a pub! I count 15 researchers from MPLS departments, so that's a good showing.
