Hurrah! We’re going to be hosting our first event! Scicomms has ballooned over past couple of years and we’ve been following the process. Thousands of scientists, young and old, sharing what they’re doing in the lab; posting all the problems and elation they encounter. The feeds of Instagram and Twitter are bursting at the seams with pipettes, scientists and cell images.

But to what extent is it your duty to do this and is there any harm in it? We’ve pulled together a superhuman panel to tackle the question, moderated by our editor Bill.

Tickets are free and there’s free food and drink! Event details are below:
