Science Unplugged: Dinosaurs, Food and Future Cities (2020)

NO VENUE ASSIGNED

Summary

The formula for science unplugged is pretty simple. Take three of the brightest minds at the World Science Festival Brisbane, and give them a stage for 20 minutes each to share their love of science and the passion of their project. Throw in some Q & A, and deliver to an audience full of curiosity.

In this session you’ll hear learn how we really experience flavours with food scientist Heather Smyth; find out about building a city on the sea with Joerg Baumeister; and Paul Willis will share his passion for paleontology.
