It’s International Women’s Day and local scientists are coming to the Pub to share their research, from astronomy and fusion through to machine learning and the archaeology of possums.
And it’s free thanks to ANU College of Engineering and Computer Science, National Computing Infrastructure and ANU Research School of Chemistry.
The line up:
Astronomer Eloise Birchall (Stromlo, ANU) says making baby stars is just like baking a cake
Adelle Wright (ANU Maths) is also helping to make a star – on Earth. She models fusion experiments at 300 million degrees that she hopes will provide us clean energy.
Adelyn Colbourne is going to sing us a song about quarks. Be prepared to help out… she’s only 6!
The Cuscus is a cute cousin of the possum. Shimona Kealy (ANU Archaeology) says ancient humans deliberately took them with them to islands of Indonesia and Micronesia.
If you find Meena Sritharan (ANU Fenner School) wandering slowly through a forest looking blissed out, it’s fieldwork: she’s looking for rare plants.
Michele Conyngham (Dramatis Scientificae) believe scientists should learn to talk to big business and politicians. So she’s bringing along a surprise guest.
