Hi ASCers,

Any help you can give promoting the following events (especially in Sydney
and Melbourne) will be greatly appreciated. This particular Science Nation
event is always a lot of fun so I would highly recommend checking it out
for yourself. :)

Science Says! 2018

*Science Says!* is science as you’ve never seen it before, and with a lot
more laughter! Join us as brilliant scientists, gifted comedians and
talented communicators use their wits and wittiness to uncover the top
scientific discoveries of 2018 – and a few of the odder ones, too!

It’s an evening in the style of the great panel shows – think mixing *Mock
the Week*, *Spicks and Specks*, and just a dash of *QI*. Last years’ shows
saw physicists miming sticky saliva, professors donning hard hats, and
biologists serenading the audience – all in the name science!

Hosted once again by Dr Joel – scientist, comedian and co-host of *Food Lab* on
SBS – you’ll be guaranteed a night of entertainment, competition and comedy
– and education, too! So secure your tickets early and join us in November
to find out what *Science Says!*
