Discoveries that changed our world
Curiosity might have killed Schrödinger’s cat, but it’s also helped advance our society to what it is today. Everything that has made our modern world started from scientific curiosity, and the biggest discoveries and achievements often have subtle, hidden, and surprising histories. You are invited to the third Science at Melbourne lecture of 2022, presented by physicist Dr Suzie Sheehy, author of “The Matter of Everything: Twelve experiments that changed our world”.
This Science Festival marquee event is being held at Science Gallery Melbourne and guests will have the opportunity to take part in a private tour of the SWARM exhibition opening that same week. Our evening will conclude with a drinks and networking cocktail function held amongst Science Gallery’s impressive installations.
The Science at Melbourne Lecture series is the premier public event series from the Faculty of Science. The event program seeks to share our knowledge and love of science with the wider community, engaging them in current research and empowering them to ask questions and take actions for a better world. The series runs throughout the year covering scientific research, discoveries and theories that play exciting or unexpected roles in shaping and advancing our society.
