What does a tectonic plate say to you when it bumps into you at the bar?
Sorry, my fault.
The team at SciPub are excited to announce that our next event explores the fascinating science of plate tectonics! If you've ever wanted to learn more about how the plates of the Earth move, how geologists can tell they are moving and what all this means for volcanoes and tsunamis, come along and find out!
Please join us for #SciPubPlateTectonics on Friday 6th April at the Rob Roy Hotel (106 Halifax Street in the city). This event kicks off at 6:00 pm and will finish by approx. 7:30 pm (doors will be open from 5:30 pm for those who wish to arrive early for seat).
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 #SciPubPlateTectonics are:
Dr Laura Rollison - School of Engineering, University of South Australia
Mr Bob Major – retired geologist (formerly with SA Department of Mines and Energy)
A/Prof Erick Bestland – College of Science and Engineering, Flinders University
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!
