Science at the Pub – Behind the Scenes of Scitech’s Profs and Pints

Science at the Pub

Scitech bravely placed science discussions into the pub environment with their Profs and Pints series during June and July this year. They invited the people in Perth and on twitter to join in. The series started with a discussion on the Gore Delusion before moving on to a very timely conversation on the use of technology and censorship. The third installment of Profs and Pints asked what it mean to be human and what happens when science mixes animals and technology before finishing with why we seek answers.

Each session of Profs and Pints drew an audience that packed The Velvet Lounge in Mt Lawley and a lively banter between the invited speakers and those that attended.

Renae Sayers from Scitech will be giving the behind the scenes view of Profs and Pints and its effectiveness in communicating science.
