Researchers from across MAPP are taking their research out of the labs and into the pub, as they get ready to share more about their work at the Pint of Science festival in May.

Pint of Science is a non-profit organisation that invites science and engineering researchers from cities across the world to share what they do and why they do it. The annual Pint of Science festival gives the general public an opportunity to meet with researchers in a casual space – such as a pub or café – and learn more about their work, findings and the impact that research can have on the world around us.

Across the UK researchers deliver talks in local pubs, exploring everything from friction and detecting structural fractures, to preventing pollution from landfill and the super-powered future of the human body.

With themes covering our body, our society, planet earth and ‘tech me out’, it is set to be an interesting and varied series of talks over three days.
