Events

Our events are open to all – no matter their backgrounds!

ChatSci

Featuring a diverse range of interesting speakers, our ChatSci events are for people to chat about science, with the aim of encouraging collaboration and conversation.

Our next ChatSci events are all 6:30pm in Argyle Bar (15-17 Argyle Place, Edinburgh, EH9 1JJ) every two weeks from 7 May – 8 June and FREE for members. (£2 for non-members, membership is £3 per academic year.)

Speakers from previous events include a fashion designer working with scientists to grow her own fabrics, a host of PhD students working on issues from lung cancer to brain repair, entrepreneurs in areas such as virtual biotech and flat-pack housing, and professional science communicators.

Workshops

Our most recent workshop was “Art and Science on a Postcard” and brought together the two disciplines to create science-related pieces of art which were exhibited in May 2018 as part of a Pint of Science initiative.

A previous workshop “Let’s talk about animal research” aimed to assist researchers in how to talk to the public about their animal research.

We also host a range of ad-hoc events such as a recent panel discussion on AI and robotics as well as semi-regular science-themed pub quizzes.
