Welcome to the Scientific Society of Pembroke College.

Welcome to the Pembroke College Stokes Society,

This society was founded in 1909 with the aim of sharing cutting-edge science with the wider student body and has been doing so ever since. We are committed to ensuring diversification in the scientific community and offering connections for students to pursue their interests and careers through hosting weekly talks by scientists from all fields and backgrounds. Ensuring the society offers this to all those who seek it is our imperative goal.

The 2016/7 committee also hope to strengthen ties with Pembroke through offering a new resource sharing hub on our website, pushing for broader social events throughout the year and establishing a charity scheme linked with the college. Pembroke has one of the greatest community feelings at Cambridge and we want the Stokes Society to be at the heart of that.

Furthermore, we would like to offer our assistance in all of your university pursuits. Whether this serves as welfare or academic guidance in a scientific context we hope you will email any member of the committee (email addresses here) if you need help.

Best of luck for the year and we hope to see you on Wednesdays at 9pm.

Oliver Hulme
