I'll be presenting on the 15th of October, come on down and enjoy the fun :)
The Laborastory is looking for speakers for their upcoming shows: the villains of science edition on 15 October and their regular heroes of science show on 19 November.
Each month The Laborastory brings together five scientists or people who have a passion for science to share the story of their science hero. The stories are roughly ten minutes each. There are no slides, usually no props, just the story. The stories are mostly about the person behind the science with some of the science introduced.
The show is extremely popular; every show has sold out. Melbourne is hungry for science. The key might be that the stories are about the people, rather than the intricacies of the science. Alternatively it might be because the scientists are talking about their heroes and tell the stories with passion. The audience is always warm and eager to hear the stories.
The show is held at The Spotted Mallard in Brunswick.
Would you like to share the story of your science hero or have a good villain story you'd like to share? Or do you know a scientist who has a good story to share? They don't have to be performers, they just have to have passion for their subject. Contact Natalie at n.j.collard at gmail.com<mailto:n.j.collard at gmail.com> for more information.
