What and When is SciBar??
SciBar is exactly what it sounds like - Science in a Bar! Our goal is to bring science to a wider audience in a relaxing and informal environment.
These events are run at the St Aldates Tavern (see below for map) in Oxford city centre, normally on the third Wednesday of every month at 7pm. The topics are varied, previously we've covered everything from detox diets to the legacy humans will leave on the Earth, so there's bound to be something that appeals to all tastes. You can see a list of our previous speakers on our Past Events page!
The events are free and no previous science knowledge is required - so come along and learn the science behind everyday life over a pint!
Wednesday April 15th @ 7pm: Oxford SciBar - Scientific Discovery: What are we on about with Dr Sylvia McLain
Dr Sylvia McLain is a biophysicist at the University of Oxford where she runs a research group who's primary aim is to understand the physics of life, by looking at biology on the atomic level. Sylvia is also an armchair philosopher who is interested in the structure and philosophy of modern science, how it works and what its limitations are. She is also a retired mountain climber and kayak instructor and failed petrol station attendant and pizza delivery girl. Join us for what will be a fascinating discussion about the structure of scientific discovery and busting stereotypes amongst other things!
Come along to the Blue Room upstairs at St.Aldates Tavern on Wednesday March 18th at 7pm to find out!
