Pint of Science is a worldwide science festival that takes place 20-22 May and brings researchers to your local pub to present their latest scientific discoveries. This year, there'll be over 550 PoS events happening across more than 40 cities in the UK, covering nearly every kind of science you can imagine – there should be something for everyone.

Here at Imperial College London, we're supporting the theme "Beautiful Minds" with the following events:
