Just a girl spreading the word about all the fun (and probably nerdy) things to do!
Science and beer, what more do you need?
Who says you can't learn and have a beer at the same time?
This upcoming event is one close to my heart (as I happen to be a huge science fan) it's called Pint of Science, and it's an event to help make science accessible to all simply for the price of a pint of beer ($6).
This event is found all around Australia and is held mostly in bars and breweries! It runs from the 20th of May until the 22nd, and is filled with speakers from all fields of science, ranging from PhD students to those in the peak of their scientific career.
You can get some of this sweet sweet merch on the Pint of Science website pintofscience.com.au/merch/
I'm extra excited as I will be MCing at the Milton Newstead Brewing location and I happen to know for a fact that there's a great lineup happening there, with some excellent talks about venomous animals being used to create cures for disease, cutting edge research being done by a number of PhD students (some of which are past 3 Minute Thesis finalists), and even a talk on the search for Brisbane's Best Beer thanks to yeast!
The shows will run from 6pm-9pm and have plenty of breaks to grab food (or a pint). I know that some locations (like Newstead Brewing Milton) are even providing special Pint of Science beer during the event, which really is amazing, and shows the level of dedication going into this event.
I can tell you now, it's going to be spectacular! So grab your tickets now.
