27 September 2016 - 'Stand-up Science' Dr Jack Heal at the British School of Brussels from 7:30
A post-doc researcher from Bristol University, Dr Jack Heal combines science and stand-up comedy and has starred at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. His performance will answer the question: Do Scientists Dream of Synthetic Sheep? And much more!
This event will also feature prize-giving for the top scorers in our 2016 Chemistry Challenge (you can see the prize winners from 2015 here) ! The event is free to all, however there will be the opportunity to contribute to a charity that Dr Jack supports: the 'Against Malaria Foundation' that helps protect people against malaria by supplying and distributing insecticidal nets. You can also donate directly to the charity via this web page. The venue for this event will be the Ruebens Hall at BSB.
