National Science Week 2016 is nearly here….so let me tell you a story.

Once upon a time there was a wee Scottish man called Professor Flint.

He was funny and nice (most of the time), and loved to read books. He was a scientist, and he wore a tartan hat.

The man had a problem.

He wanted to tell children all about life on earth — how fantastic and interesting and cool it was — but he didn’t know how.

Should he write a book? Nah, thousands of those already.

Should he make a TV show? Nope, parents get cranky if kids watch too much TV.

Should he gather them all in an enormous room to join him in talking, singing and dancing his very entertaining and hilarious show all about fossils and invertebrates and mammals and neanderthals and humans?

What a fabulous idea!

Professor Flint’s 2016 show ‘A Brief History of Life, The Universe and Everything‘ will be presented from Saturday August 13 2016 as part of National Science Week 2016.

The Professor (who looks remarkably like 2014 Unsung Hero of Science Communication, Michael Mills) will be joined on stage by members of Adelaide Youth Theatre.

After this amazing display, you’ll never think the same way again about Australian science, scientific discoveries and scientific research!
