This Wednesday at Scienceworks…
Could a treatment for jetlag be used to prevent brain damage in newborns?
Brain stimulation devices: science-fiction or science fact?
How planting trees can help us deal with landfill waste.
Join us for a drink and hear bright Victorian scientists talking about their research in plain English.
No jargon, no lab coats… and they’ve only got three minutes. They’ll perform in front of a public audience and a panel of judges. Props, music and poetry optional.
There’s even a chance to take a look at museum’s new ‘Think Ahead’ exhibition.
