    Event description

    Microplastics are everywhere! Join us as we delve into the science behind these miniscule pollutants lurking in our environment. Learn about their pervasive presence in our waterways, soils, and even within our bodies, and discover the approaches scientists are taking to monitor and mitigate their impacts.

    New to SciPub? Wondering what we are about?
    The principal goal of SciPubAdelaide is to make science engaging and accessible to the public. Each panel consists of three experts who deliver 10-15 minute presentations on their area and then open up to questions from the audience via a moderator. Panellists are selected primarily on their ability to effectively communicate science in an engaging and non-technical manner. SciPubAdelaide is held in a pub so that scientists, aspiring scientists, and non-scientists can learn, discuss and think critically about hot topics in science.
