Call for Presenters!


We all know the Fringe just hasn’t had enough physics in it. This year’s that’s all changing, as Physics in the Pub takes its rightful place in the phun of the phringe.

Tell a story, run a quiz, sing an ode to a nematode – get creative in the friendly environment of the Rob Roy Hotel. The crowd will be warm thanks to MC Dr Phil of Phil Up On Science (and maybe because of the warming beverages…)  – you have eight minutes to entertain and inform them.

Last time we had the geophysics of graves, indigenous astronomy and poetry about going to live on Mars – what will you do? Contact Dr Phil now to discuss your idea, on or 0414945577. Deadline for Expressions of Interest: Fri 21 December.

WHEN: 5.45 PM, Tuesday 12th March, 2019

WHERE: Queen St Ballroom, Rob Roy Hotel, 106 Halifax St, Adelaide, 5000

COST: Free, thanks to Australian Institute of Physics and Inspiring SA. Registration required!
