Pint of Science logoOur researchers will join approximately 270 scientist at this 3-day festival, which takes place from 19th to 21st May. The festival hosts events in 44 venues in 8 cities across the UK, and internationally via branches in France, Switzerland, Ireland, Australia, and the US. In Oxford, events will take place at The Oxford Retreat (1-2 Hythe Bridge St, Oxford OX1 2EW), The Cape Of Good Hope (Iffley Road, The Plain, Oxford, OX41EA), St. Aldates Tavern (108 St Aldate's, City Centre, Oxford, OX1 1BU) and Wig and Pen (9-13 George St., Oxford, OX1 2AU). 

The format is simple: down-to-earth talks by top scientists over drinks and pub grub. With 14 universities participating and over 150 volunteers, these talks will engage you with stories, discoveries and fun facts that will amaze you and your mates.

This year's themes are: 

  • Matters of the Mind – What impact are modern technologies having on our brain? Can we use psychedelic drugs to treat psychiatric disorders?
  • Our Body – Should we be able to design our babies? What has the most influence in modifying our body: attitude or diet?
  • Chemistry & Physics – What is so important about the water on Mars? How is nanotechnology influencing our lives?
  • Planet Earth – How do you survive, and do research, in the Antarctic? Can massive earthquakes occur without us knowing?
