If you thought art and science didn’t mix then now is your chance to change your perceptions. Southern Cross University is running the third Art vs Science Festival in Lismore this Saturday August 18 from 10am to celebrate National Science Week.
From the microscopic world of flowers and what makes frogs croak to how pictures make our brains smarter there is no end of curiosity to be indulged and fun to be had.
The day will also feature music, art and an exploration of how food transforms in our mouths by food historian Associate Professor Adele Wessell.
‘You might even pick up some hints on how to manipulate the taste buds. After all, it’s what we think we’re going to eat that matters most,’ said Professor Wessell.
If you have ever feared sharks on our great oceans the you might be interested in the drone-based shark detection systems being developed by PhD student Andrew Colefax. He is planning to explain away some of those old myths about sharks and talk about how people and sharks can be netter managed.
There is plenty more on offer from coding to hands on interactive and experimental events across six different Lismore venues.
