Pint of Science NL - "Can Chemistry Save the Planet?"

Fran Kerton and Chris Kozak are both Chemistry Professors at Memorial University. Their research involves developing environmentally friendly technologies including biodegradable plastics and waste-to-products.

Pint of Science happens at the same time in over 10 countries around the world. It is an event where scientists have the opportunity to inform the general public about cool research happening in their area, while having a pint of beer.

This is a free event and open to anyone over the age of 19. There are 3 different nights with 3 different research topics, discussed by multiple professors from Memorial University. Learn more at
