REAL science is fun, educational and above all – inspiring!
REAL science is a really fun, really engaging science presentation put on by Brisbane’s own touring scientist Dr Joseph Ireland (AKA “Dr Joe”). Here you’ll not only learn, but experience, how a real scientist will behave, dress, and above all THINK. Learn about asking questions, generating theories, and testing them with experiments – and discover that these are things that not only scientists do, but that you can do too!
Learn about the limits, and powers, of science and scientific thinking. This is not only a great chance to hone student and teacher scientific literacy, it is a chance to experience that that the best science is not only in what we see, hear, and feel, but goes beyond our senses to explaining the unseen world with unprecedented success. Experience, and then UNDERSTAND, the science behind green fire, cryogenic liquid nitrogen, and an explosion so loud you’ll have to warn the neighbours!
Entertainment is very nice, but you deserve more when you order Science Edutainment!!!
Available as a stand alone show, or in conjunction with the Science Exploratorium - our touring science centre that has been called 'the science centre that visits your centre!'
