Science in the Pub at the Rob Roy


Science in the Pub kicks off at 6pm Friday, 3 June at the Rob Roy Hotel – 106 Halifax Street, Adelaide.

This month’s panelists are Professor Craig Simmons, Director of the National Centre for Groundwater Research and Training (NCGRT), Flinders University; Dr. Richard Lilly, Research Fellow, The University of Adelaide; and Elinor Alexander, Director of Geology and Exploration, Department of State Development, Government of South Australia.[/remark]

Traditionally, a pub is a venue of slurred banter and grand plans never to come to fruition, however, on the first Friday of every month at The Rob Roy, Science in the Pub is raising the bar.

Each month a topic is chosen and a panel of experts in that field present their latest research, which the public can then (with the aid of social lubricants) question, contend, or commend, with a beer in hand.

This Friday, 3 June, the question posed is ‘what has geoscience ever done for you?’ to which we reply that we’re not sure, but we’d be happy to find out over a pint.

Brains and beer working together at last. Seems like a good idea to us.
