Get ready Guelph, because the Pint of Science Guelph team is gearing up for Pint of Science 2020! Given the demand for last year’s event, we are aiming to make this one even better – so be sure to save the week of May 11th for a series of exciting and engaging talks by students, staff, faculty, and community partners involved with research or the application of research findings with or at the University of Guelph.
To bring an even better event to the City of Guelph, we are currently recruiting students, staff, faculty, and community partners who might be interested in speaking about their research. While we can’t guarantee a spot for everyone (and will give preference to those who haven’t spoken at one of our previous Pint of Science events), we will work to curate a series of talks that reflect some of the suggestions from audience members at last year’s event, and that complement each other.
If you are interested in presenting a talk as part of the Pint of Science Guelph 2020 events, simply fill out our application form here. Applications are due by February 7th, 2020 at 5:00 pm.
And feel free to share this post with anyone whom you think should apply to present.
The full list of speakers and venues will be announced later in February. We will also let you know as soon as the free tickets for the events are available.
If you are a business that wishes to sponsor the Pint of Science event, please reach out to us. Pint of Science Canada has several sponsorship levels, each with its own set of perks. You can contact me using the form below.
