Volunteers for Pint of Science Festival
My name is Magda and I am writing you aiming to recruit a crew of volunteers to organise a Pint of Science (PoS) event (https://pintofscience.com/about/) due in May, 2020. These events aim to bring scientist and their work to people by engaging in conversation over a beer during a span of three consecutive evenings. PoS talks are flexible in number and duration, although it is recommended to have 2 short talks (20min each) per event plus a break and quiz time.
Since Göttingen is so big in science, I thought it would be cool to organise something like that. Here I describe what will be needed from volunteers:
- 1h work/week
- 1 group meeting/month
- 1 meeting with PoS/month – help us organising
- Select the pubs
- Select the speakers and help them with the talk guidelines (advised by PoS)
- Assist and moderate the talks
- Organise quiz to entertain the public
- Describe each talk and overall event
- Select the medium of publicity (engage students and lay people)
- Apply for funding to cover publicity costs
If you are interested in collaborating, please send me an email along this week to meet and chat.
