Event description

Description

Why do some professional tennis players grunt? Want to become a Wellness Guru in time for the post-Christmas recovery? And too little fat can make you unwell? And a special kind of fat can make you burst into Spontaneous Human Combustion? Australian radio and TV presenter and author Dr Karl Kruszelnicki is back at the Ri for a special night of festive formulae and Christmas questioning. As well as taking us on a tour of some of the more interesting and obscure yuletide science, we will also flip things around for one night, with the audience going head-to-head with Dr Karl in an interactive quiz at the end. Bring a fully charged smartphone or tablet (and brain), and join us for an evening of festive fun!

Parental warning: This event will include surprising new information of links between certain “spiritual characters” and “Santa Claus” – but don’t worry, it will be cool. This event is particularly suitable for ages 12+.

The doors will open at approximately 5.30pm, with a prompt start at 6.00pm. There will be time for questions after the talk.

By booking to attend events at the Royal Institution, you confirm that you have read and agree to the Ri's event terms and conditions.
