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

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

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.

and Pints and its effectiveness in communicating science.
