Wonders of the Brewniverse: Sheff pubs to host boozy science talks
Taking place 14-16 May, some of the city’s best boozers will be playing host to a collection of stimulating scientific talks, covering everything from physics to geoscience to robotics.
Founded by Dr Michael Motskin and Dr Praveen Paul, two research scientists at Imperial College London, Pint of Science now runs in over 150 cities across the globe and aims to deliver fun, interesting and relevant talks and activities based on the latest in cutting-edge research.
Following the success of previous years, the festival will again be stopping off at six city pubs. For three days the Hallamshire House, Commonside, will be home to everything physics, chemistry, maths and astronomy whereas Sentinel Brewhouse will be exploring the wonders of planet Earth. If you’re a bit of a techy then Millowners Arms is the place for you, or if history, politics and law tickles your fancy then head over to the Old Queen’s Head.
The premise is simple: grab a pint, pull up a bar stool and marvel in the mysteries of the universe.
Here are the pubs taking part in Sheffield:
Atoms to Galaxies – Hallamshire House (physics, chemistry, maths, astronomy)
Beautiful Mind – The Sheffield Tap (neuroscience, psychology and psychiatry)
Our Body – Tamper Seller’s Wheel (medicine, human biology, health)
Our Society – Old Queen’s Head (law, history, politics, policy, language)
Planet Earth – Sentinel Brewhouse (geosciences, plant sciences, zoology)
Tech Me Out – Millowners Arms (biotechnology, robotics, computers)
