For the first event for 2020 find out how OUR fossils informs the rest of the world about evolution over the last half a billion years!
South Australia is exceptional for its wealth of unique fossil sites. Beyond the beautiful opalised fossils found in our deserts, the best global evidence of early multicellular organisms comes from the Flinders Ranges. In Kangaroo Island, we can find fossils of the oldest animals, with muscles and skin preserved, while the Naracoorte Caves present a great window into the fauna that welcomed the earliest humans in our continent.
We are pleased to announce our panellists are:
Dr Felicity Coutts - Palaeontologist, collaborating with Department of Environment and Water
A/Prof Diego García-Bellido - Research Leader, The University of Adelaide & South Australian Museum
Dr Liz Reed - Vertebrate Palaeontologist, Faculty of Sciences, The University of Adelaide
Please join us on Friday 7th February at the Rob Roy Hotel (106 Halifax Street, Adelaide). 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 SciPubAdelaide is to make science engaging and accessible to the public. Each panel consists of three experts who deliver 10-15 minute presentations on their area and then open up to 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. SciPubAdelaide is held in a pub so that scientists, aspiring scientists, and non-scientists can learn, discuss and think critically about hot topics in science.
Please note: Though Eventbrite issues automated tickets, we do not check or collect tickets at the venue. RSVPing does not guarantee a seat; the RSVP facility makes it easier for us to estimate numbers so that we can accommodate accordingly. 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 will be delighted to see you there!
