Spot the Bull S…cience

The Science Nation is celebrating National Science Week with *Spot the Bull
S…cience*, a contest of intelligence, interrogation and deceit. The premise
is simple – Australia’s best and brightest scientists will present three
scientific ‘facts’; the catch is, only two are correct! Your job is to
discern the truthful statements from the fiction while the scientists do
their Oscar-winning best to fool you into believing the latter. *Spot the
Bull S…cience* is 90 minutes of science and laughs that promises to be fun
for everyone.

Events will be held on the following dates and cities:
11 August – Sydney

Trying to fool Sydney is: microbial ecologist and hobby guitarist, Dr Marco
Giardina; marine biologist, fish sex researcher and underwater explorer,
Prof Bill Gladstone; chemist, science communicator and host of *Up and Atom*,
Dr Alice Motion; physicist, freediver and mountaineer, Dr Peter Rohde; and
veterinary geneticist and part-time seahorse stalker, Dr Bianca Waud.
