Next Meetup

Science by the Pint
Science by the Pint is a free science café in which a Boston-area research lab goes to a pub or brewery to chat science over a cold one. The speaker will give a brief overview of her/his research and answer audience questions. After that, the rest of the lab (grad students, postdoctoral researchers, research assistants, etc.) will rotate around the tables to have small-group, informal conversations about what they’re working on. The July 2 topic is "Science Diplomacy from the Arctic to Our World," by Dr. Paul A. Berkman. The Burren has a great beer selection. This being Somerville, in addition to a standard food menu for an Irish bar (in my opinion higher quality food than most), they have a selection of vegetarian & vegan burgers and entrees. The presentation starts at 7:00 sharp. Please arrive between 6:30 & 6:45 to socialize, eat & drink. It sometimes is difficult to hold seats after 6:45. The event is geared toward a general audience – all are welcome and no experience is necessary!

What we're about

You like learning things, going to museums, science lectures, and you can't get your regular crew to go with you.

Perhaps you went to engineering school, but you use hair conditioner anyway.

You're intelligent and you have social skills, even tho you might have a video game or two on your hard drive.

If you're willing to let your geek flag fly, please join us. Event suggestions encouraged.

And, if there's something you want to go to that our organizers can't make, we can post the event anyway to rally the Nerd Herd to keep you company. Just let us know.


Hair conditioner optional.

The Nerd Fun Creed:

Nerds RSVP "yes" only when they're sure they can show - 'cuz Nerds are wicked smart and are able to plan ahead reliably - Nerds don't let their fellow nerds down.
Nerds also know how to set up email filters so they can handle the quantity of email that meetup produces. ;-)
Assistant organizers have the right to disallow you from coming to an event if they can't see a photo of you on your profile page.
The Nerd Fun organizers are not responsible for any personal risk anyone might take while attending an event. Use your common sense, be safe.
