Our North West SciBars are seeking speakers!

Our North West SciBars are seeking speakers!

Are you interested in sharing your research in an informal atmosphere?

SciBars are informal discussions in a pub, where we invite scientists to present their research and then lead a discussion about it.

Run by the British Science Association North West Branch, our SciBars are hugely popular and attract audiences of up to 90 people. The audience will be interested in science, but will not necessarily be from a scientific background.

We run SciBars in Knutsford, Didsbury, Bollington, Macclesfield, Congleton, Wilmslow, Widnes and Chester. Details of previous speakers in Knutsford and Macclesfield can be found on their respective websites.

Interested? Send a summary of your research interests to Lorelly Wilson at: lorellywilson@gmail.com
