I just wanted to let all our followers know about a couple of events happening later this month: the Pint of Science Festival and Amazed by Science.
Pint of Science
Explore the hottest scientific topics with world leading experts
…at the pub
6 Countries, 21 Cities, 3 Nights, 4 Themes, 1 Ground Breaking Festival.
The Pint of Science Festival “aims to deliver interesting, fun and relevant cutting-edge science talks in an accessible format to the public – in the pub!”.
A range of talks, demonstrations and fun activities will be taking place across the world. In the UK there are events taking place in Bath, Bristol, Cambridge, Glasgow, London, Oxford, York, and most importantly, Manchester. Further afield, there are events in the USA, Australia, France and Switzerland. The four themes for this festival are Matters of The Minds, Understanding our Bodies, Chemistry & Physics, and Planet Earth.
Several members of our group will be taking part in the Planet Earth events in Manchester:
On Tuesday 20th May Michael Broadley will be talking about From Core to Crust: A journey through the interior of the Earth.
And on Wednesday 21st May Katherine Joy will be Exploring The Moon, while Francesca McDonald and her glamorous assistant(!) will be Cooking Up A Comet.
Amazed by Science
Amazed by Science is a new, Cheshire wide science festival. Events will be taking place at some of Cheshire’s biggest attractions during half term, 24th May – 1st June.
We’ll have our usual activities – moon rocks, meteorites and microscopes. And we’ll be making a comet. Keep an eye out for some new meteorites, including one from the Moon and one from Mars, which we’re hoping will make their first appearance at this event.
