Pint of Science

Fancy a Pint of Science? Get a fascinating insight into research on robots, climate change & deadly viruses in the pub

You’re invited to join a group of scientists to talk about their incredible research in three different city venues next week.

We’ve all been captivated by award-winning documentaries on forensics, the natural world and AI. We’ve all probably heard some amazing tales down the pub from time to time too. From 20th-22nd May 2019, three Liverpool venues combine those two things by hosting the Pint of Science Festival.

Pint of Science Festival returns to Liverpool for a third year and aims to basically, blow us away with an insight into compelling research in loads of different subjects. It’s all part of an international festival that will see thousands of scientists simultaneously standing up and telling the public about their research in over 300 cities across 24 countries.

Alongside the main talks, each evening will also include a range of science-inspired activities including hands-on experiments and quizzes, with Pint of Science prizes to be won.
