The Royal Society Show Case Science aims to celebrate and promote to the public the diverse research members undertake to advance knowledge in SA. The event will:
- Show examples of cutting-edge and impactful research,
- Make a Case for science in our society, and
- Have a dialogue on the future of Science in SA.
The format will be a combination of live, high-energy 3-minute lightning talks presenting research, arguments for why we need science, followed by question time and a panel debate, and opportunities for informal exchanges between scientists and the public.
The lightning talks will be on a variety of natural science disciplines.
The event will be led by an MC and will be live-tweeted. There will also be prizes awarded for Best Talk and the Best Argument, with attendees to vote for their favourites, to further encourage engagement.
Attendance can be in-person (with a cap depending on COVID-19 limits) and also live-streamed online to reach a broader audience. Booking links will be provided here shortly.
COVID-19 safety requirements will be strictly adhered with ticketed in-person
attendance to a safe capacity (using Eventbrite booking), QR-code scanning, having hand-washing facilities and hand-sanitiser available, and adhering to 1.5m social distancing.
