I'm running a Physics in the Pub event partnered with the Aust Institute of
Physics on March 24, and there are a couple of slots open for creative 8
minute science presentations - contact me ASAP.
Eight snappy physics acts, each of a mere eight minutes - and YOU are
invited to take part.
Just give us eight minutes of phun, phascinating physics: a demo, a story,
a song, some stand-up or a new twist on a traditional presentation. You
know what I mean - we’re not talking frictionless inclined planes or
spherical cows in a vacuum. Maybe even no

(It's a distant cousin of the Science in the Pub Adelaide series, but
different to their awesome discussion-style panels!)
In Sydney and Canberra we've had touch-paper explosions, particle physics
gaming, songs, potty-mouthed stand up and some plain ol' damn good physics
talks. Professors, students, teachers. Adelaide, it's your turn to emit
Anything goes in this format which is sweeping the UK – show off an
innovative approach to communication in front of a friendly audience.
Astronomy, quantum, particle physics, materials, geophysics, everything
Or if you’re too chicken to try it, then mark the date, and come along to
laugh, cry and cheer!
I will be your MC on the night, and I will MAKE the audience applaud,
cheer, laugh (when appropriate) and worship you; so do not be afraid.
Besides, it’s in a pub, they’ll be “favourably disposed”.
Date: Friday 24th March 2017
Time: 6 – 8 PM
Venue: Rob Roy Hotel, 106 Halifax St
Work required on your behalf : A measly 8 minutes (and maybe
a practice run or two)
Just drop me an email with a title, a description of your act, genre
(demo, music, comedy, talk, video, story etc), and your resource
requirements, along with a short bio. Or call me to discuss, workshop or
develop ideas – 0414 94 5577.
Expressions of interest by Fri 3 March 2017 to phildooley at gmail.com.
