Science By The Pint

Sbtp Spring back option

The Younger Chemists Committee will attend the monthly Science by the Pint events and we have a table in the back room of the Burren (located at the Davis Square T-stop). Visiting scientists and their graduate students visit each table, giving us a great opportunity to not only meet other YCC members, but meet scientists in different disciplines as well, expanding your network while learning about the “hottest scientific” topics from those doing the research!
