The Science Communication Festival returns to Santa Fe

Pint of Science is a non-profit initiative born in the United Kingdom in 2012 and is now holding its fourth edition in Santa Fe from May 13 to 15.

Pint of Science, the science communication festival that proposes an encounter between researchers and the public in bars, arrives on May 13, 14 and 15 to fill the Brew Pub Estacion Saer, located at Belgrano Station (Bv. Gálvez 1150), from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m.

The proposal aims to provide interesting, fun talks relevant to current scientific research in a format accessible to all audiences, all in the pub! Organizers want to provide a platform that allows citizens to discuss research with the people who do it.

“We are doing Pint of Science not only because it is a platform for communicating science but also to be able to provide a space for the exchange of ideas and solutions to problems of the city and the region,” said Dr. Ana Paula Capello, coordinator. For this event the Conicet is a postdoctoral fellow with a work placement at INTEC UNL-CONICET.

“The theme of this year’s event will be ‘The World of Technology,’ where speakers will deliver talks related to various technological developments, including artificial intelligence, advanced crops, smart cities, bioinformatics, and others,” added Dr. Diana Peltzer, event coordinator.

In 2012, Dr. Michael Motskin and Dr. Praveen Paul were researchers at Imperial College London. They first hosted a “Meet the Researchers” event that brought together people with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, motor neurone disease, and multiple sclerosis in their labs to demonstrate the type of research they were doing. This visit was very inspiring for visitors and researchers. And with that experience, they thought, “If people want to go to laboratories to meet scientists, why not bring scientists to people?” And thus the non-profit Paint of Science Foundation was born.

In May 2013, they held their first festival that brought together some of the biggest names in their fields to explain their innovative work to science and beer lovers.
