About Nerd Nite

Nerd Nite is “the Discovery Channel with beer”, a worldwide monthly event series that mixes presentations, performances, trivia, demos, music, and of course drinking. Nerd Nite Tokyo events are held in English.

Get involved (we want you!)

If you are interested in presenting or volunteering, send us an email (tokyo@nerdnite.com), message us on Facebook (fb.com/nerdnitetokyo) or send a DM on Twitter (@nntokyo). You do not have to be a (science) presentation pro! Anyone — scientists, engineers, artists, makers, hackers, historians, science fans or storytellers — can give a talk at Nerd Nite about their own projects or just anything they find cool. Our past speakers include a medieval sword expert, artificial intelligence researchers, a hackerspace guru, a videogame artist and a nuclear physicist.

Nerd Nite Tokyo is a non-profit endeavor and everyone involved is a volunteer. Money raised goes towards paying the venue, equipment for the show, trivia prizes for the audience, drinks for the speakers, and to support the non-profit Yokohama Theatre Group.
