The Pint of Science festival aims to deliver interesting, fun and relevant talks on the latest science research in an accessible format to the public in the relaxed setting of public houses across the world. QMUL organise annual events to coincide with the three day festival each May, with a team of volunteers bringing together researchers from across the institution to deliver activities such as talks, quizzes and workshops.

In 2015 QMUL organised nine events, covering a range of topics such as how we learn to speak, building a universe out of LEGO, science comedy and translating laboratory experience into patient care and vice versa.

The next festival will be 23-25 May 2016, you can get involved by contacting the QMUL team or visiting the Pint of Science website.
