Fresh Science in the Pub this June & July

Fresh Science in the pub in Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, Perth, Brisbane… and for the first time ever in Canberra.

Come enjoy a beer and hear 10 “Fresh” early-career researchers share the stories in their science.

Last year we heard about: how feeding chickens whole grain can help feed 100 million people, how sea snakes find their mates, smart socks for physiotherapists, whether cats & dogs are friends or foes, predicting volcanic eruptions, and more.

So, what’s #FreshSci this year?

These up-and-coming scientists will describe their scientific discoveries in the time it takes a sparkler to burn out. It’s about a minute–sparklers vary.

Join us to find out at our pub events around the country. Tickets are free, but booking are essential.
