Please come and join us at the Rob Roy, in partnership with Science in the Pub, for the April 2016 event SciPub; The Future. This month, we depart a little from our traditional format of science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM) to also acknowledge the affair art and science has been having for quite some time. Both are dedicated to asking the questions, big and small : “What is true? Why does it matter? How can we move society forward?” Both search rigourously, sometimes wanderingly, for the answers. Our expert panellists will explore this interface and take us on a facinating journey into the future where we might just find that science and art are not quite the polar opposites they may first appear.
Science at the Pub will be regulars at our pub, so come along on the first friday of every month, it is FREE!
Arrive early for free nibbles starting at 5:30pm and grab a seat before things begin. Kicking off at 6:00pm and finishing at 7:30pm.
The principal goal of SciPub is to make science engaging, accessible and accountable to the public. Each panel consists of three experts who deliver short, 10-15 minute presentations on their area of expertise and then discuss questions from the audience via a moderator. Panellists are selected primarily on their ability to effectively communicate science in an engaging and non-technical manner. SciPub is held in a pub so that scientists, aspiring scientists, and non-scientists can learn, discuss and think critically about hot topics in science.
The panellists #SciPubFuture are:
Dr. Alice Gorman, Senior lecturer of space archeology at Flinders University.
Dr. Kristin Alford, Director of Science, Creativity and Education Studio, The University of South Australia.
Professor Julian Meyrick, Professor of Creative arts and cultural policy analyst, Flinders University.
We look forward to seeing you there!
