  2. 2. @pintofscience #pint19 20-22 May 2019 pintofscience.co.uk Researchers explain their latest findings to the public in the comfort of a pub/cafe or similar public venue Pint of Science is an annual festival that happens over three evenings in May simultaneously in multiple cities It’s designed to be fun activity with people coming away having learnt an interesting fact they will share with others The events are aimed at the public who have an interest in knowing what’s going on in science research, but who do not have a background in it What is Pint of Science?
  3. 3. @pintofscience #pint19 20-22 May 2019 pintofscience.co.uk People are interested in how the world works. There’s also a gap in knowledge about what scientists actually do and this leads to mistrust For scientists it’s a platform to share their research, giving them a different perspective, it’s also an increasing requirement from funding bodies For attendees it’s an opportunity to hear about what’s happening and directly question people who are responsible for research and the future of science For organisers it’s a great way to learn team-working, event management, science communication and provides an opportunity to showcase what research goes on at their university and/or city Why do it?
