Sometimes described as an answer looking for a question, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki explains science as you’ve never heard it before.

Celebrate the strange and wonderful place that is our universe with Australia’s most popular science communicator. As Dr Karl explores some of the Great Moments in Science, he answers questions you never knew existed.

Come on a rollercoaster ride of scientific, humorous and fascinating stories which will make you laugh and learn. From the ground breaking and life saving to the wacky and implausible, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki reveals some of the best moments in science.

Who is Dr. Karl? He is an Australian science communicator, author, television and radio presenter. He has degrees in physics, maths, biomedical engineering, medicine and surgery, and he has worked as a physicist, tutor, film-maker, car mechanic, labourer, and a medical doctor. The list goes on!

Please join us for an evening with Dr. Karl – his enthusiasm for science is infectious!

MC for the evening is Dr Hannah Brown, Chief Science Storyteller at the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute (SAHMRI). Hannah leads Storytelling, Communication and Development at SAHMRI and she sits at the interface between science and the public.

Before and after the event, Dr Karl will be available for book signings and Dymocks will have a range of Dr Karl’s books for sale.
