July Newsletter


We can’t believe that ChatSci is over for the academic year! But fear not – our main event will be back in September. In the meantime, read on to find out how you can grab yourself a free drink, courtesy of InterSci.


…will be back 10 September! Stick it in your diaries and calendars as it is bound to be an incredible first event of the new academic year. It will also be hosted in a yet to be announced new location!

Your thoughts?
We’d like to know what you think of our current events. If you have attended any Ask a Scientist or ChatSci event, we would really appreciate you filling in this quick questionnaire. (It should take no more than 5 minutes!)

Fancy a free drink?
We are looking for speakers for series 5 of ChatSci! All speakers get a free drink as a thanks but if that’s not reason enough to volunteer, then I can tell you from personal experience that it is a great thing to do!

Was I nervous? YES. Did I need to be? NO WAY. Everyone was so friendly and it was amazing to hear people’s thoughts and questions.

Interested? Email us and feel free to ask us anything – intersci.edinburgh@gmail.com

We have reduced price tickets from £14.50 for adults or £12.50 for students. We’ll be meeting by the zoo in the afternoon, all you need is a packed lunch and your sense of adventure! Keep an eye on our Facebook page for more details about the trip.


Join our team

We’re a friendly bunch and we do a lot of cool stuff but to keep doing all this cool stuff (and more of it), we need a few extra hands…The roles we do are varied and tend to cross over. This means we are simply looking for people with interesting ideas and drive and enthusiasm to get involved with organising (this sometimes involves playing hook-a-duck and baking cakes).

If this sounds like you then r drop us an emailintersci.edinburgh@gmail.com.
We look forward to hearing from you!


Finally we would like to leave you with our fun science fact of the month:

Sometimes sunflowers are planted to clear up nuclear waste.

Go on… Google it.
