Physiology Lecture Theatres (Building 63) - Lecture Theatre 360


Abstract:  The talk will discuss the nature of the patent system and
fundamentals of its operation. It will also deal with certain aspects of
the requirements for patentability (novelty, inventiveness etc.) -
understanding the nature of those requirements can assist inventors in
interacting productively with their patent attorneys.

Things are going to get messy at Scitech on the evening of Tuesday 4 September, with a barbeque duck dissection and public lecture about dinosaurs. Places are limited so book now<http://www.scitech.org.au/events/events/lecturesaurus-series.html>.

Scitech is pleased to present a series of public lectures in which local scientists will provide insight into some of the fascinating research in the world of palaeontology and extinct animals. The lecture series coincides with Scitech's current feature exhibition Explore-a-saurus<http://www.scitech.org.au/dinosaur-invasion/exhibitions/dinosaur-invasion.html>, and each lecture will include time before and after the lectures to step back in time and walk amongst the dinosaurs.

-------------- 4 September - Why is a duck a dinosaur?
Join us for a live dinosaur dissection with Curtin University's Associate Professor Kate Trinajstic. Tyrannosaurus Rex and Triceratops haven't walked the planet for 65 million years, but are dinosaurs all extinct? The 2010 Prime Minister's prize winner will dissect a barbecue duck to show that avian dinosaurs are alive and well today, and discuss her own research on fossil fish.

-------------- 24 September - Ancient volcanoes and asteroids: Where did the dinosaurs go?
What dramatic change occurred nearly 66 million years ago to cause the mass extinction of the dinosaurs? Curtin University geochronologist Dr Fred Jourdan will guide us through the myths and facts of volcanoes and asteroid impacts, and show us how several factors probably contributed to the dinosaurs' demise.


Time: Doors open 6.00pm, lecture 6.30-7.30pm
Location: Lotterywest Science Theatre, Scitech
Cost: $5 per person, or free to Scitrekker members.

The fee includes time in Scitech's Explore-a-saurus exhibition which will be open before and after the lecture (6pm-8pm)
Bookings are essential by following the Trybooking link here<http://www.scitech.org.au/events/events/lecturesaurus-series.html>.


The lectures are open to the general public and pitched to adults and teenagers.
