Are you interested in sharing science with the public?

Do you enjoy relaxing with friends at the pub?

If the answer to both is YES, then Pint of Science Australia is for you!

Pint of Science is an international festival that aims to showcase the amazing research of local scientists to the general public in the relaxed venue of the local pub. In 2016, Pint of Science Australia ran in 7 major cities over 3 nights in May. We had events in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Newcastle, Sydney, and Perth.

 For 2017, we want to expand even more to include more themes and even more pubs across Canberra – and we need you!


Events in 2017 will take place from 15-17 May, and will incorporate the following themes:

  • Beautiful Mind (neurosciences)
  • Atoms to Galaxies (physics, chemistry)
  • Our Body (life sciences)
  • Planet Earth (geosciences) and
  • Tech Me Out (engineering, computer science, mathematics).

We are looking for volunteers for various roles:  team coordinators, social media reps and fundraisers. Each team will source out a venue, speakers, and activities for the night.


This is an incredible opportunity to be a part of our ever growing festival so if you are interested in getting involved, please register your interest here or email pintofscienceau@gmail.com with what you’re keen to do, tell us a little bit about yourself and how we can best reach you.
