The Scienceing Room: silly questions, serious science!
Sat 1 April 2017, 13:30 – 15:00 BST
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. Juliette Schuurmans - "Would it be canibalism if a cactus drank tequila?" (asks Anna)
2. Phil Wiles - "How much tea could kill a man?" (asks Matt)
3. Dr Dave Christensen - "Are narwhals related to unicorns?" (asks Nayah)
4. Alice Harpole - "Why is moon?" (asks John H)
5. Helen Littler - "How much wood would a woodchuck chuck?" (asks John L)
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 Tammy)
8. Ivan Ling - "When will the internet have arms?" (asks Sarah)
9. Magnus Gorny - "Why don't we have green hair?" (asks James)
10. Anmol (a child) - "Why kids are usually amazed/obsessed with trains?" (asks Tom)

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!
Following a recent break-in at The Art House, we aim to use this event as a fundraiser but will accept any form of donation on entry. Please book your free ticket to ensure your place here though!
The Science Room is a creative space where your science questions inspire interactive discussion and online content at www.sciroom.org. Get involved!
Got a science question? Email us at email@example.com and we’ll find a scientist to answer it!
