Fire, and the use of fire, is one of humanity’s earliest experiments in science, dating back to before the dawn of civilization. With it we could be safe from predators, keep warm, and cook our food. But it also presents danger and mortal risk when we lose control, and for all our technological developments since harnessing fire, we still have much to learn!
The team at SciPubAdelaide are excited to present #SciPubFire on Friday 3rd August at the Rob Roy Hotel (106 Halifax Street in the city). This event will showcase some of the ground-breaking fire-related research that is being undertaken right here in South Australia, covering everything from fire risk and safety management, the impacts of climate change, and effects of fire on wine quality. This event kicks off at 6:00 pm and will finish by approximately 7:30 pm (doors will open from 5:30 pm for those who wish to arrive early for seating).
The principal goal of SciPub is to make science engaging and accessible 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.
We are pleased to announce our panellists for #SciPubFire are:
Dr. Mika Peace - Lead researcher, Bushfire and Natural Hazards CRC Coupled Fire-Atmosphere Modelling – Bureau of Meteorology
Please take note. We endeavour to make your SciPub experience an enjoyable one. Although Eventbrite issues automated tickets, we do not check or collect tickets at the venue. The RSVP facility makes it easier for us to estimate numbers so that we can accommodate accordingly. RSVPing does not guarantee a seat. Doors are open from 5:30pm and due to the popularity of some past events, we would advise patrons to arrive early to avoid any disappointment. Thank you for your support. We hope to see you there!
