Hello to budding science communicators.

The Australian Science Communicators (Canberra) would like to invite you,
your friends, family, and some of your pets to see Bobby Cerini present
"Science on Film" on April 12.

The communication of both good and junk science takes many forms; from the
weekly astrology section in the newspaper to ground breaking scientific
discoveries broadcast on non-commercial TV.  But what of that mega-industry
that is Hollywood? Or the amateur film arena of YouTube?  What sorts of
science can we expect from the “film”?

In this presentation Bobby Cerini, PhD researcher with the ANU, will address
the topic of 'Science on Film' in a world where anyone with a video camera
can become James Cameron, and where James Cameron with a computer can do
away with actors.

When: Tuesday 12th April 2011 @ 5.45pm for 6pm start

Where: The Green Couch Room @ Public Awareness of Science (CPAS), Ground
Floor of Building 38A The Physics Link Building @ The Australian National
University (http://campusmap.anu.edu.au/displaymap.asp?grid=ef54). Note:
Door locks at 6pm, call Dustin if locked out.

Free Entry for members.
$5 non-members or Join on the night.

BYO Alcoholic Beverages. Soft drinks and Snacks provided

Bookings not required but seats are limited.

Enquiries: Dustin 0407 015 739 or asccanberra at gmail.com

Cheers,
Dustin
