Event description

Description

To be a science wizard, you don’t need a laboratory filled with fancy equipment, in fact, many of the world’s most famous scientists made great discoveries and inventions using common, everyday items. Join Jake from Midnight Science Club at Faraday Studios in the US in a demo-filled spectacular, and find out the surprisingly simple skills it takes to think like a scientist. Expect laughs, excitement and plenty of interesting science along the way.

Prof. Steve ‘Jake’ Jacobs is an accomplished scientist, educator, author, and media personality, with a career built out of making science fun and accessible. The former chief scientist of television’s Discovery Channel, Jake has written and presented a series for the Discovery Channel, and also for National Geographic TV and Fox Television where he was the creator and on-air host of the series Jake’s Attic. As well as over 15 years of classroom teaching & administration, he also has a wealth of experience in science communication. He is Director of Science Education at Children’s Museum of Wichita & Mr. Wizard Studio, Hollywood, as well as Science consultant to Disney, National Public Radio (NPR), the Smithsonian, PBS, Nickelodeon, Paramount Television and FOX Television.

This event is particularly suitable for ages 7+.

Discounted tickets are available to Members of the Ri. Find out more about how to join our community.

The doors will open at approximately 1.30pm, with a prompt start at 2.00pm. There will be time for questions after the talk.
