This August in Astronomy on Tap we celebrate the holidays with a Summer Party! In this occasion, we want to relax and show everyone what it is like to be an astronomer. We will have a panel with astronomers at different stages of the career: Master student, PhD student, Postdoc, Lecturer, and Associate Professor. They will tell us about their science journey and will answer all your questions on what it is like to be a scientist.
For this opportunity only we will start our event at 19h. Come join us outside de Burcht (Burgsteeg 14, 2312 JS Leiden), enjoy a drink, some ice cream, and chat with our team of astronomers. Of course, we’ll also have our usual games and prizes!
