Pint of Science

It’s being called a ‘science festival for adults,’ and they’re holding it in a place that grown-ups hold dear: the local bar!
Researchers from USF and Moffitt Cancer Center are once again taking part in “Pint of Science,” a three night, international festival where the latest scientific discoveries are discussed in an informal setting over drinks. We preview this year’s festivities on University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
