Profs And Pints Perth – Sex Ed, Science, Porn, Professionals And Prawn Dinners

It was the first full-day of teaching for me, so I popped in late and left early from SciTech Perth's spin on science outreach via lectures in the pub - if you don't know what Profs and Pints means, just think "Café Scientifique" meets "Skeptics in the Pub" with all the things that you love about interacting with fellow science fans, like a Twitter wall, great presenters on challenging issues, a fantastic, feisty host like astrophysicist and science communicator Renae Sayers, Q&A time and gre … [Read more...]
