May Members Meeting – Pint of Science – Next Week!

The previous version of this post mentioned the meeting was in August. This was incorrect. The meeting is on May 20th.

Our May meeting will be something a little different to the usual members meeting. We’ve teamed up with Pint of Science for this meeting and, as outlined below, the program will be of interest to our members. There’s a $5 charge to attend this meeting, but members will receive a free beer in return for their attendance.

What is Pint of Science?
New scientific discoveries are happening all the time, fascinating developments which will change the future of the human race. But how often are you given the chance to really understand how these discoveries are made and what they mean?

The Pint of Science festival will have some of world’s best scientific researchers go to pubs across Australia to discuss their latest findings with you. This is your chance to get face-to-face with the people involved in carrying out current research. You can listen to them talk, or just enjoy a chat over a pint.

The festival will have two fixtures in Adelaide  on the 19th and  the 20th May 2015. These fixtures will be part of a wider program occurring in 40 cities and across 8 countries. Tickets and details available from http://pintofscience.com.au/adelaide/
