The history of South Australia’s gardens stretches back to the founding of South Australia as a colony.
But beyond a place to relax and enjoy, what are the roles of our gardens for the 21st century? And why are plant collections so important for our future sustainability? The team at SciPub are excited to present #SciPubGardens on Friday1st June 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 #SciPubGardens are:
Dr Lucy Sutherland - Director, Botanic Gardens and State Herabrium of South Australia
Dr Kate Delaporte – Curator, Waite Arboretum, University of Adelaide
Prof Michelle Waycott – Head of the State Herbarium of SA, Prof of Plant Systematics, 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!
