A group of scientists from Queen Mary University will be taking part in a ‘pub crawl’ to discuss a variety of topics including designer babies, burn toast and windy days.
The boffins from Queen Mary University of London in Mile End, will be touring drinking holes across the city as part of this year’s Pint of Science Festival.
The festival was founded seven years ago by Dr Praveen Paul and Dr Michael Motskin to bring back the personal touch to science, and offers unique talks, demonstrations and live experiments to drinkers from May 20-22.
Each evening will also include science-related activities including games, science comedy, fun quizzes and geeky puzzles.
The festival’s director Dr Callam Davidson said: “This year’s festival will feature some fantastically creative events cooked up by our endlessly ambitious volunteers, showcasing some of the nation’s most brilliant researchers in their local pubs and cafes.”
