Our events are open to all – no matter their backgrounds!
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 start at 6:30pm in Harry’s Southside (42-44 Buccleuch St, Edinburgh EH8 9LP). Every two weeks from 10 September – 22 October 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. Find out more about previous speakers here.
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.
