Science Unplugged: Psychedelics, Weather and Solar Cells

slq Auditorium 2, State Library of Queensland

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 from the ABC’s Nate Byrne about his love of all things weather and science related; Niraj Lal will take us on journey to the sustainable cities of the future; and Margaret Ross will enlighten you about the new medical dawn for psychedelic drugs.
