Science Slam – That’s Funny …
NEWSFLASH: Ivanka Trump, “first daughter” of the President-Elect of the USA, is planning to speak to Americans about the urgency of tackling climate change. One problem – her father described climate change as “a hoax perpetrated by the Chinese”. And his senior adviser called climate change “a bunch of bunk”.
Laughter is a remedy for most problems, so Leeds Cafe Scientifique is planning a Science Slam with a comedy theme. Please bring us your vaguely-science-related jokes, funny stories, etc.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions, either solo or as a double act, etc. We’re also planning a panel game as part of the Science Slam – please email if you would like to take part.
Cafe Sci Leeds was set up to encourage understanding and debate about topical scientific research and issues in an informal setting. Speakers are invited to present a short talk on an area of science in which they have been involved which is then followed by questions and comments.
