Scientists have been educating the nation in pubs at this year’s Pint of Science festival.

Pubs across the UK have been involved in hosting hundreds of lectures from scientists this week (May 15-17).

The festival was set up by Dr Michael Motskin and Dr Praveen Paul, two research scientists at Imperial College London, who decided there was no better place to share their findings than in the pub over a drink. 

Topics of this year's lectures included neuroscience, astronomy, robotics and even politics.

We went along to one of the events to get a flavour of what the festival is all about. Watch the video above to see. Plus see some tweets from some of the people who got involved below.
