Who doesn’t love a pint of science?

So you might have heard that we were super into Pint of Science 2019! From 20-22 May, Pint of Science wanted you to experience science first hand, straight from the horse’s mouth.

This year, we had 24 of our scientists descend across 19 cities and towns across 154 events in Australia. Phew, that’s a lot! But rather than recounting in a straight text post about how much fun it was to hear emerging research over a pint (or two!), why don’t we do the same? Let’s experience Pint of Science first hand from the event itself.


Bee cool with Dr Amy Paten in Canberra


It’s oil in a day’s work for Kyle Reynolds in Canberra


Break the mould with Sieh Ng in Melbourne


Data-riffic bodies with Dr Simon Harrison in Melbourne


Jamie Stevens and Robert Hollow want to give you some space in Sydney


Fun fact: Jamie is based in Narrabri (bonus points if you can point that out on a map) and came all the way down to Sydney to share a pint! Maybe rural NSW is *too* much space for him?

So that’s it from us for 2019. As always we’re proud to have supported the brightest scientific minds around the country, including some of our very own. We’ll catch you next year!
