Science Showoff, 23rd November, Grain Barge, Bristol

The world is rubbish. Let’s hide in science, art and laughter.

On Wednesday November 23rd, we invite you to join us on the Grain Barge. Buy tickets now. You’ll see talented performers including:

Leah Richards on Sexuality – what is it, what does it do, and does anyone care anymore?

Dom Moylett – When he isn’t busy using quantum physics to make our technology better, Dom likes to kick back and play video games, but he often finds them very difficult. He will justify why he struggles so much, by explaining how you can mathematically prove that your favourite video game is hard.

Poet Thommie Gillow and sci-commers Liz Lister and Becky Hurwitz (Wisterlitz) presenting extracts from Moonbrella, a work that explores the stories of some of the women whose lives are commemorated in lunar craters.

Jamal Kinsella – Human scientist Jamal Kinsella invites you into an experiment where you’ll be exposed to some bad vibrations

Russell Arnott has been an artist, an oceanographer, a Physics teacher and more recently the Outreach Officer for WhaleFest which involved going into schools with a life-size orca teaching kids about the sea. Having just started a PhD at Bath University, he is going to be talking about his research in plankton which is much more interesting (and important) than most people think…

Sadie Harrison, who has Noticed Something about the history of science.

Kate Oliver, a nanomaterials student doing a PhD in printing jelly, who will describe some experiments that just really didn’t need to happen.

and more, details TBC!
