Several Cambridge science societies joined forces to put on a ‘Science Societies’ Garden Party’ this may week. It was a lovely small event held in the gardens of Pembroke College, with lots of snacks and cakes to enjoy while chatting with friends.
I was only able to attend for about an hour or so due to various other social commitments (May week is very busy!) but it was great to catch up with friends from lectures/ labs after exams and relax in the sunshine.
The Science Society is one of my favourite societies at Cambridge – they organise a series of weekly talks with guest speakers coming from not only within Cambridge but across the UK to present summaries of their research or talk about current topics in science. Membership is very cheap (currently £12 for lifetime membership) and enables you to attend as many or few talks as you like. They have a cheese and wine reception after each talk to chat to other students and the speaker, which is a lovely way to socialise and meet other science students.
