We meet once a month at various places around the region, often in Birmingham city centre. During the summer months we host a family picnic day, featuring the ‘Great BrumSciComm Bake Off’.

It is not unusual for people to try out new demonstrations, seek career advice or find themselves planning work with each other. We get people who aren’t even scientists; so no excuse. There is no guest speaker and we like it informal.

We’re ready for our Xmas social! We’ve booked the Map room in Cherry Reds on John Bright Street for 7pm on 7th December. It’s just outside New Street Station and the room is upstairs. If you want the delicious buffet contact @NaomiGreen ASAP. If we order soon, we get a free bottle of Prosecco. There will be a STEM quiz and if you want to do Secret Santa, then no more than £10.

Definitely a sociable bunch.
