Pint of Science 2014
Issued: Fri, 31 Jan 2014 10:12:00 GMT
Pint of Science is a non-profit organisation run by volunteers and was established by a community of postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers in 2012 with the aim of bringing cutting-edge science presentations to the public in an informal environment, i.e. the pub! The Pint of Science Festival will take place between Monday 19th - Wednesday 21st May 2014 in 11 universities across the UK and in Ireland, US, France and Switzerland internationally. 16 postgraduates from the College of Science and Engineering have taken on the challenge of bringing the world leading research that we do here at University of Glasgow to the public. Over three nights speakers from the University of Glasgow will hold talks in pubs across Glasgow in the four areas;
Matters of the Mind (neurosciences and psychology) - Our Body (life sciences) - Physics and Engineering Brilliance (physical sciences) - Planet Earth (earth sciences).
The University of Glasgow will be the first Scottish University to get involved with Pint of Science and it will be a fantastic opportunity to showcase our research and commitment to public engagement in a relaxed surroundings and fun setting. So come share a pint and some science! For more information please contact Scott Smith firstname.lastname@example.org.
