Sci Bar

SciBar – literally science in a bar!

SciBar meetings are discussions about science that take place while people relax and enjoy a drink. If you have a general interest in science, or one of the topics grabs your attention, then it is a great opportunity to learn more. You do not have to know anything about science – just turn up with an inquiring mind.

What is SciBar?

The SciBar idea came from the national British Science Association.

Local SciBars are set up and run by volunteers.

At a SciBar, the speaker will deliver a talk about their research, work or sometimes their hobby. Following a break for ‘refreshments’ the floor is opened for discussion and questions at any level. SciBar is open to anyone, you don’t have to be a member of the British Science Association – although membership is free if you would like to join.

As we are run as a charity, all we ask is for is a donation ‐ the price of a drink ‐ this helps to pay for speaker’s travel expenses, materials and quiz prizes.

Liverpool SciBar takes place on the first Tuesday of the month, except for August and January.

What topics have been tackled by Liverpool SciBar?

In previous Liverpool SciBars we have discussed bees, ants and toxins. We have had a heated discussion over the moon landings and learnt more about the English longbow and gold panning. Future topics are often chosen from those people getting in touch with us to put themselves forward.

We have a facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/livscibar, where information about events is posted. Or you can contact us via twitter @merseysci. If you think you would like to share your knowledge please get in touch, we are always looking for new speakers and new volunteers.

Here is the details of the next meeting:
