About Us

Every moment of your life you experience science, and in these times it is barely possible to go even an hour without coming in to contact with some form of technology. Science is all around us and it helps us understand who we are. It’s unfortunate then that it can be so hard to follow…and that’s where Science Brainwaves comes in.

We are a group of enthusiastic and passionate science communicators, made up of a multitude of people doing, teaching and studying science, engineering and just about everything related! We want to take everything ‘science’ and put it out there in a way that everyone can understand and enjoy.

Current Committee

Science Brainwaves is run by the official committee. We are supported in our events by a huge team of volunteers, with more and more people getting involved all the time.

Work With Us

If you are an organisation that wishes to work with us to arrange an event, then please get in touch. We can put together, carry out, and attract the right audience to any science event; be it public lectures, workshops or something a little bit different. We are based in Sheffield, but we can potentially go further afield.
