Welcome to The Scienceing Room - where our #sciroom scientists take your silliest, funniest, and trolliest questions and apply a dose of science with a helping of humour.
On April 1st, we've invited a dozen fools with a background in science, creativity or both to deliver a family-friendly variety entertainment event at The Art House with talks, comedy, music, live drawing (not to be confused with life drawing), and plenty of weird science!
The performers and their talks will be:
1. Zoe Slade - "If I was to eat myself, would I get bigger or smaller?" (asks Zoe (different Zoe))
2. Phil Wiles - "How much tea could kill a man?" (asks Matt)
3. Dr Dave Christensen - "Are narwhals related to unicorns?" (asks Nayah)
4. Helen Littler - "How much wood would a woodchuck chuck?" (asks John L)
5. Alice Harpole - "Why is moon?" (asks John H)
6. Dr John Lapage - "Could you create spider pig or similar hybrid animal?" (asks Helen L)
7. Tom Hunt - "Could the Mary Poppins bag really exist?" (asks Olly)
8. Ivan Ling - "When will the internet have arms?" (asks Sarah)
9. Andrea Ravagli - "Is glass a solid or a liquid?" (asks David)
10. Magnus Gorny - "Why don't we have green hair?" (asks James)
11. Anmol (a child) - "Why kids are usually amazed/obsessed with trains?" (asks Tom)
12. Stuey Goodale performing music on two silly science questions
The Scienceing Room is a new subproject of The Science Room as a response to our extraordinarily high volume of funny and troll questions. We wanted to find a unique and entertaining way of rewarding your, um, "imagination" - so please, keep them coming!
The Science Room is a community where your science questions inspire creative discussion and online content at www.sciroom.org
Got a science question? Message us at The Science Room and we’ll find a scientist to answer it!
