Pint of Science Festival Comes to Chiswick
Experts talk dark matter, bionics and drone technology in the pub
The Pint of Science festival is coming to Chiswick this year with leading scientists talking about cutting edge research in the George IV.
The event aims to deliver interesting and relevant talks on the latest science research in an accessible format to the public – all in the pub.
The first session on the Frontiers of Quantum Theory has already sold out but there are still tickets available for the two other days.
On Tuesday (24 May) there is a session about robotics with Rob Siddall, a PhD student at Imperial College London talking about drones and Dr Emily Mayhew (Historian in Residence, Department of Bioengineering, Imperial College London) talking about the very latest developments in military medicine including bionics.
The following day (Wednesday 25 May) the topic is Light, Matter and Everything in Between. Dr Pablo Albella (Research Associate at Imperial College London) will tell you why the sky is blue and the sunset red and Dr Pat Scott (STFC Rutherford Fellow in Astrophysics at Imperial College London) will talk about the search for dark matter.
The organiser want to provide a platform which allows people to discuss research with the people who carry it out - no prior knowledge of the subject is required. It is run mainly by volunteers and was established by a community of postgraduate and postdoctoral researchers in 2012. The main festival takes place annually over three days in the month of May simultaneously in pubs across the world. Pint of Science is a non-profit organisation
Tickets cost £4 and can be bought online on the links above. The doors open at 7pm and the talks take place from 7.30 - 10pm.
The George IV is at 185 Chiswick High Rd, W4 2DR.
