Researchers from Northumbria will be speaking in pubs across Newcastle next week as part of the international Pint of Science Festival.
The festival is being held in Newcastle for the first time from 23-25 May. Over three days, in three different venues across the city, a total of eighteen researchers from Northumbria, Newcastle and Durham Universities will take to the stage and talk about their research into the big questions of life, the universe, and everything, alongside science-related activities, such as quizzes, puzzles and competitions. You can look forward to tornadoes on the sun, mitochondrial mayhem, and the science of movement to name but a few!
The three themes for this inaugural Newcastle festival are:
- Our Body at The Bridge Tavern
- Beautiful Minds at The Core
- Atoms to Galaxies at The Town Wall
Pint of Science is an international festival run as a volunteer, not-for-profit organisation. It has received local sponsorship from The Core, Wylam Brewery, the North East branch of the Institute of Physics, the Faculty of Medical Sciences, and Cancer Research UK. The organisers have also teamed up with local breweries Newcastle Brewers Ltd. and Out There Brewing Co. to provide a range of local beers to The Core for this special meeting of beer and science.
Tickets are now on sale at the Pint of Science website, where you can find a full line up of events and speakers.
