Science Says!

Talk
Sunday 20 November 2016, 3-4.30pm Powerhouse Museum

You’re invited to an event of science and comedy in the style of great panel shows like Spicks and Specks and 8 out of 10 Cats. Join world leading researchers, gifted comedians, and professional science communicators as they battle wits and wittiness to uncover the top science stories of 2016 (and some of the quirkier ones too!)

Hosted by Dr Joel Gilmore, you’ll be guaranteed an afternoon of entertainment, competition and comedy – and perhaps even education! So secure your tickets early and join us to find out what Science Says!

Competing for scientific glory in Sydney is: contortionist, acrobat, fire spinner and astrophysicist Jess Bloom; neuroscientist and jazz singer Josien de Bie; molecular biologist and rock climber Dr Elinor Hortle; biologist, social insect enthusiast and defender of science Dr Marianne Peso; investigator of illusions, delusions, and altered states of consciousness Dr Vince Polito; and biomedical researcher, educator and adventurer Dr Jen Rowland.
