All our events of open to all.

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. We aim to make our events accessible by keeping costs low or free when possible.)

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.

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

Our next workshop is “Art and Science on a Postcard” and will bring the two disciplines together to create science-related pieces of art which will be exhibited in May as part of a Pint of Science initiative.

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.
