This is your last chance to get tickets to the Sydney launch of Australia's
newest public events series, The Science Nation
<http://thesciencenation.com/>, which promises to provide educational
entertainment that makes you laugh while you learn.

After an amazing event in Brisbane the series moves to Sydney on the 16th
of May with an event of science, laughs, food and drink:

The Storytelling of Science

As attention spans shrink, engaging others with science is getting harder,
but does this have to be the case? Whether it is Archimedes taking a bath
or an apple falling on Newton’s head, stories are far more engaging and
easier to remember than the facts science has to offer.

Please join The Science Nation for the series' first event - The
Storytelling of Science. See the best in the nation tell their own story of
science, and drive their discussion on the stories behind cutting edge
science. From the origin of the universe to the exciting technologies that
will change our future, this event is one story you will want to hear.

Sydney’s storytellers include: Astronomer and Outreach Officer for the
Australian Astronomical Observatory Dr Amanda Bauer; anthropologist,
science communicator and former journalist A/Prof Darren Curnoe; physicist,
engineer, science communicator and entertainer Dr Joel Gilmore; founder of
Prismatic Sciences and former president of the Australian Science
Communicators Dr Jesse Shore. This event will be hosted by physicist and
science communicator Dr Andrew Stephenson.
