New year, new nerds, new facts. Welcome to 2018. This month we’ll be learning about 3D printing, quantum physics, and the history of London in one street. Be there and be square.

A London Street Through Time - Stoke Newington Church Street 1847-2017 

London streets have changed considerably since the early Victorian period as once-quiet residential streets became bustling commercial hubs, suffered post-war decline and in some cases were slowly gentrified over time. Amir will present his analysis of the commercial occupants of Stoke Newington Church Street from 1847 to the present day (291 properties!). The research tells the colourful story of one street in the last 170 years, that is also story of London as a whole.
Amir Dotan is a life-long history buff, who as a hobby researches the history of Stoke Newington in North-East London, where he has lived since 2002. He organises local history events and shares his research findings online at When he isn't trawling through archives and history books Amir designs financial applications in the City.

Tales from 3D printing adventures

An introduction to life with 3D printers. Hannah show you some exciting current applications in different industries and how difficult printers can actually be behind the hype. She will share tips, tricks, facts and fails she has picked up along the way.
Hannah Cameron is a maker by trade and 3D printing specialist. She has her own printer named Extrudy Mcstrudeface and uses him to anthropomorphize her printing adventures.

Wtf is Quantum Physics? (And why should you care?)

Quantum is an often used but little understood word. It seems almost science fiction, however it is anything but. This presentation will outline some simple real-world truths about quantum physics to demystify the topic for you and show you how it is used in technology today, cutting-edge research and in nature all the time.
Shaun Geaney is currently studying for his doctorate in metrological quantum physics at the National Physical Laboratory. His work involves building a novel microscope that uses microwave radiation to detect and observe individual defects - the nature and cause of which is unknown - that exist in superconducting quantum bits (or "qubits") that are used in quantum computing.

All proceeds from Nerd Nite London go to charity. This year we are partnering with the Shine Trust to help foster a new generation of nerds.
