LGS Members interested in Giving Lectures?
Dear potential speaker,

Thank you for your interest. Please find below some information about SciBar. If you need anything else please let me know.
Many thanks

SciBar is organised by the Merseyside branch of the British Science Association and held on the first Tuesday of the month at the Ship and Mitre on Dale Street.
We are always looking for new speakers so please get in touch either by emailing me (
shawest@stmarys.lpool.sch.uk) or via twitter (@merseysci). This is your chance to promote your work or research and get some practice public speaking.
The format is very flexible. The idea is to have a presentation of your work (two 30-45 minute sections separated by a break to refresh glasses), followed by questions from and discussion with the audience. The evening runs from 7:30pm. There will be a Chairperson for the evening who may suggest periodically that we break for people to refresh their glasses etc.
SciBar is aimed at members of the public with an interest in science, rather than professionals or students, and is fun and informal. The full range of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) is covered by the events. The audience is up to 30 people across the full age range. Most do not have a scientific background but all have a keen interest in STEM subjects.
We have a projector and screen available if you want to use a presentation to support your talk, although we ask that speakers keep technical information on slides to a minimum.
We can pay reasonable travel expenses and also for a meal in the pub.
