Fancy a Pint of Science?

7 April 2022

UCL Electronic and Electrical Engineering (EEE) researcher, Harry Smith, will be participating in a worldwide festival, bringing science communications into pubs.

Harry Smith for Pint of Science

Harry will join hands with other researchers across UCL to organise three events under the umbrella topic of Atoms to Galaxies. The events are entitled ‘Physicist to Physician: where two sciences meet’, ‘Powering the Future’ and ‘Origins of the Universe’.

Harry will also be hosting the latter event, exploring how new stars are formed and the properties of stars in distant galaxies using the James Webb Space Telescope.  

The idea behind the festival, known as ‘Pint of Science’, is to bring researchers to local pubs/cafes/spaces to share their scientific discoveries. There will be multiple topics discussed with their own dedicated teams.

So...interested in a Pint of Science? Catch Harry and his fellow researchers on 9 May 2022, 7:00pm to 9:30pm (BST) at The George IV, 185 Chiswick High Road, London, W4 2DR, United Kingdom.

Pint of Science festival - Quench your thirst for knowledge - #pint22
Pint of Science is a grassroots non-profit organisation that has grown astronomically over the years since two people decided to share their research in the pub. Although the mission has expanded, their core values remain the same: to provide a space for researchers and members of the public alike to come together, be curious, and chat about research in a relaxed environment outside of mysterious laboratories or daunting dark lecture theatres. They believe that everyone has a place at the table to discuss the research going on both on our doorsteps and far beyond. The missions and visions are based around the people that matter most: audience, volunteers, speakers, and the wider research community.
