St Aldate’s Tavern, Oxford, OX1 1BU United Kingdom + Google Map

Ever wondered how to make non-science people see how great science, technology, and critical thinking can be? Why are events like Skeptics in the Pub, Cafe Scientifique and Science Showoff filled with people who already have science degrees instead of the people who could gain the most from them? How can the science community and the general public work together to get more people coming to things like this and encourage the nation as a whole to embrace critical thinking?…

August 2 @ 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm
St Aldate’s Tavern, Oxford, OX1 1BU United Kingdom + Google Map

Did you know Darwin believed that women were intellectually inferior to men? Science has long had a problem with the female of our species, and in this talk I will explain why and how.
