Check out our #pintNLthuis episodes
This year has been a rollercoaster ride of emotions. With life becoming a standstill at points - going out to a bar to see friends and hear a science talk seems an age away. However, science communication did not stop.
Across the globe, fellow #pintworld volunteers organised online events and transitioned from 'live pub' events to a 'stay at home' events - all in the name of science communication. The #pintNL team took part, with its own iteration with #pintNLthuis.
Getting the ball rolling was no small feat but our dedicated group of volunteers managed to persevere and organise 10 online events, which can be rewatched at any time!
Our jovial hosts engaged in talks with guests ranging from the ongoing Operation Night Watch restoration project to a discussion on what it means to conduct science sustainably. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, our hosts engaged with researchers who investigate how the body recognises a virus and the implications of Vaccine Hesitancy. You can catch all our #pintNLthuis episodes on our website (here) or on our YouTube channel (here).
We are very grateful not only for the volunteers, who dedicated their time in this uncertain situation, but also to the guests of each episode, who dedicated their evenings to share their research to a broader audience.
We'll wrap our year with some final remarks from our volunteers so be on the lookout to hear from the dedicated individuals. Without their tireless work, the transition from live events to online content would not have been successful.
Happy holidays and see you at #pint21 (17 - 19 May 2021)
