ABC Science at Tilley's
LIVE FORUM: Care for some Nanotech in your trolley?
Saturday August 21
6pm (to finish by 7.30pm) with live election updates!
FREE

Drop into Tilley's in Lyneham and check out the nano-trolley: a load of real and hypothetical products based on nanotechnology. This technology is now being used in everyday items including clothes, phones, computers, packaging, sunscreens and cosmetics - with many more in the pipeline. How do we take advantage of this amazing new technology without risking our health or the environment?

Thought provocation by host Dr Paul Willis (ABC TV Catalyst).
Opinions and insights from experts - Dr Tim Senden (ANU), Professor Jim Williams (ANU), Dr Lyria Bennett Moses (UNSW), Dr Michael Biercuk (USYD).

Have a drink, have a listen, have your say. Bar and kitchen open.

* Why does everything change when things get really small?
* Why is nanotechnology so controversial?
* Is it safe?
* Do we need new laws to protect us and the environment?

Presented by ABC Science for National Science Week.
Tilley's Devine Café and Bar, cnr Wattle and Brigalow Sts, Lyneham
