Those clever people at The Science Nation have come up with a new show. To celebrate National Science Week, and to demonstrate just how hard it is to get scientists to believe BS (bad science), The Science Nation is holding a contest of intelligence, interrogation and intimidation that sees a lineup of scientists each trying to have their peers believe complete and utter BS.
Sydney’s participants include: statistician and model(ler) Dr Craig Anderson; national fencing champion and builder of bacterial motors Dr Matt Baker; anthropologist, evolutionary scientist and science communicator A/Prof Darren Curnoe; physicist, triathlete, bass player and beer connoisseur A/Prof Adam Micolich; and chemist, science communicator and host of Up and Atom Dr Alice Williamson.
The Sydney show is on 21 August at the Powerhouse. Tickets can be booked here.
