Curious Minds  –  Short Talks  –  Spirited Discussions

Science Pub RVA connects curious minds and creative scientists (and scientific thinkers including writers, artists, and historians of science) over a sip of some sort.

We do this by helping researchers communicate what they do, what they know, and why it matters. Then, in casual spaces where no science background is expected, we introduce them to folks who enjoy learning, but may or may not be “into science”.

72 alumni have “walked into a bar for science” since our 2012 start. Plus, we’ve had the fun of partnering with organizations including WGBH Education (producers of NOVA and other PBS shows), Virginia Commonwealth University’s Science Technology and Society Program, the Chesterfield County Public Library, and the Smithsonian Institute.

Got a question or idea? Be in touch!
Small or big, all ideas are welcome.

Most often we hear from individuals who want to present some science and improve their #scicomm. Occasionally (and we wish it was more frequently), we hear from leaders who want to partner on their team’s outreach activities or collaboratively design broader impact efforts.

Whatever your interest, let us know here.
