Scientific research has traditionally been the domain of boffins in research institutes but a new wave of scientists are mobilising the public. Join our panel to discuss how citizen science works and how you can get involved in exciting science projects that are truly making a difference.
We invite you to come along to SciPub CitSci and hear how the public are changing the way we conduct research on Friday 1st February 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 SciPub CitSci: How the public are changing the way we conduct research are:
Dr Jasmin Packer – Research Fellow, University of Adelaide
Steve Walker – NRM Education Officer, Natural Resources Adelaide and Mt Lofty Ranges
Tahlia Perry – PhD Candidate, University of Adelaide
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!
