Description

Why attend Science in the Pub?

Do you really need an excuse to go to the pub?

Mass media, such as television and the internet, provide a seemingly limitless source of information, but determining which sources of information are credible can be difficult. The monthly Science in the Pub gatherings will explore hot topics in science, with the goal of helping you to sort through and evaluate the evidence available for that subject. Each month we will bring together a panel of people with specific scientific expertise to help you form a rational, evidence-based opinion about the topic of the month.

The setting of the monthly gatherings will be very informal. You can come-and-go as you please (whenever you need a refill) and there is no cost to attend. Each panellist will spend about 10 minutes talking about their experience with the topic and present a summary of the data available for the topic. After this brief introduction to the topic, we will hold an open discussion that is driven largely by questions from the audience. As an added bonus there will be a drawing for a gift certificate for food at the pub!
