Volunteers needed for next Pint of Science Festival

20 Oct 2017

A three day festival taking place across Manchester where scientists are brought to the pub to share their research with the public

Pint of Science has been a great success and now simultaneously takes place in over 10 countries. This year marks the 5th year that the festival has taken place in Manchester.

We need volunteers to organise the following themes, as well as one-off events throughout the year: 

  • Atoms to Galaxies - e.g. Physics, Chemistry, Maths, Materials.
  • Beautiful Mind - e.g. Neurosciences, Psychology, Psychiatry.
  • Planet Earth - e.g. Earth Sciences, Plant Science, Zoology.
  • Our Body - e.g. Biology, Medicine, Health.
  • Tech Me Out - e.g. Technology, Engineering, Computing.
  • Our Society - e.g. Sociology, Public policy Law, History, Archaeology

Don’t be put off if you’re not a scientist! There are numerous roles in organising this event and we need plenty of creative minds. This is an excellent opportunity to gain experience in event organisation and public engagement, as well as meeting new people. There will also be positions on the committee such as promotion, social media officer, website organisation etc.

We will be holding our first meeting in the University of Manchester Students Union Council Chambers (room 2) at 5pm on 7 November.

Please register your interest in advance and have a think about which theme you might be interested in being involved with before the first meeting. It doesn’t have to be your own speciality!

If you have any questions or cannot make the first meeting, please do not hesitate to email Pint of Science Manchester.
