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 by Dr Joel Gilmore – 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!
