Pint of Science: Wake Forest joins in sharing community conversations about science

From tattoos to fossils to weather forecasting, Wake Forest University and Wake Downtown are partnering with community organizations and businesses to demystify science with talks at Winston-Salem breweries by local researchers. The talks are part of the international Pint of Science festival.

Pint of Science, an annual event that takes place every May, brings researchers to local pubs and breweries to show the latest happenings in the world of science. The festival began in London in 2013 and has since spread to nearly 300 cities in dozens of countries around the world, providing an informal platform for dialogue between the STEM community and curious members of the public, with no prior subject knowledge required. This is the first year that Pint of Science will take place in Winston-Salem.

Local Pint of Science events following three themes will take place at 6:30 p.m. in three Winston-Salem breweries May 20-22.

The event marks the launch of a new initiative called The Science of Winston Salem (TSO WS), using the arts, popular culture and Winston-Salem’s unique history to enhance the scientific literacy of the community.
