*Distant moons, scicomm-bots and dinosaur stampedes: ASC Science in the Pub*

It's the Australian Science Communicators national conference, so
performers from around the country are showing off their creative
approaches to communication in an informal setting, to start the conference
off with a bang.

Endangered goannas that rap, stampeding dinosaurs, a trip to distant moons,
and swing dancing liquids, this is science night unlike you've ever seen
before.

Expect standup, song and dance routines, poetry and more from all walks of
science in this no-holds-barred night celebrating innovation in sci comm,
and a love of science delivered with truly entertaining style.

A great chance to make new connections, catch up with old colleagues and
get inspired for the conference.
