You can now listen to a recording of a live event that took place at The South Australian Museum on 4 September, 2019, hosted by the museum and Inspiring South Australia.

Get ready to be inspired by some of our best and brightest young scientists, all winners of the Tall Poppy Awards. Each scientist has three minutes to share their research story, and take us on a fascinating journey of discovery.

Can we lay waste to pollution? How do we improve healthy aging and reduce the risk of dementia? Is Antarctic sea ice disappearing? How do you choose who you vote for?

Join our amazing Tall Poppies for an inspiring night of science at the South Australian Museum – presenting on the night will be: Dr Justin Chalker, Assoc. Prof. Sarah Cohen-Woods, Dr Cameron Shearer, Dr Lyndsey Collins-Praino, Dr Luke Bennetts, Dr Zlatko Kopecki, Dr Zoe Doubleday, Dr Rodrigo Praino, and Dr Tom Raimondo.

After the presentations, settle in for a panel from some of Adelaide’s top science communicators. Facilitated by Dr Hannah Brown (SAHMRI – Chief Science Storyteller), join Dr Liz Reed (University of Adelaide), Dr Pallave Dasari (University of Adelaide), Dr Justin Chalker (Flinders University) and Prof. Chris Daniels (Director Cleland Wildlife Park/UniSA) in discussing the role of science communication in creating hope in a changing world.
