Introducing this year’s Pint of Science events! The Faculty of Engineering and Science will once again be taking part in the worldwide Pint of Science festival. Academics and researchers from our Faculty of Engineering and Science will be speaking at unique venues in Kent and London to share exciting and topical research in the areas of their expertise. Venues this year include a university bar and a local distillery. This year we have a record number of talks on offer. These talks are open to all and are a ‘beginner’s look’ at science topics. Attendees do not need to have any prior knowledge of these topics to attend (although we advise that Pint of Science talks are not suitable for children). All talks will begin at 7pm. Please note there is a cost of £5 a ticket to support Pint of Science.

As part of worldwide Pint of Science Festival, Dr Sophie Turfus, Senior Lecturer in Forensic Science, will discuss how ethanol is detected by forensic scientists and current research, and will delve into arguments used by defendants. In a unique collaboration, Distillery Manager of the Copper Rivet Distillery Abhishek Banik will then illuminate how alcohol is distilled to create popular drinks.

These engaging and informative talks will take place at the Copper Rivet Distillery, Chatham.
