KPU Brew-Pint of Science Talks — Learn about science over a beer

KPU Pint of Science Langley
KPU Langley
Trading Post Brewing and KPU Brew Lab

Description:

From May 20 to 22, scientists and researchers across 24 countries will be sharing their discoveries with the general public over a beer in their local pub or craft brewery. Join us!

Kwantlen Polytechnic University's (KPU) Brewing department will be hosting two events — May 21 at Trading Post Brewing and May 22 at the KPU Brew Lab — featuring scientists from KPU's Biology, Chemistry and Physics departments. Speakers will host lively, interesting and relevant talks on the latest science in an accessible format to the public. Pint of Science allows people with no science background to learn about and discuss research with the scientists who conduct it (and have a beer with them!).

There will be trivia games, Q&A and prizes, too! Both events are free to attend but guests are required to pre-register and are responsible for purchasing their own food and alcohol.
