Science Show Off with Cheltenham Skeptics In The Pub (by )

Saturday was a hectic manic day with School Fetes, baby throwing up, art gallery stuff and Science Show Off.

Sound Board

Science Show off was part of the fringe science festival and was organised by Skeptics In The Pub. It appears to be a regular event in London and I have even signed up to do a talk in Bristol though the slots where already full 🙁

Anyway here are the photos I took of the event which had me laughing far too much. It was low light levels so the photos are a bit ropey I'm afraid.

This guy had a rainbow that whizzed round - always a winner with me.

Heat and motion

This talk even had live music played on a piano by Rob Wix (I think).

This was @ FunSizeSuze talking about pendulums 🙂

This guy gave a talk on why chillies are spicy hot 🙂 Here he is eating a rather hot chilli after which he could be found re-examining his experiment in a sink shaped test tube.

These guys were Domestic Science and had wine and a slide show of how they used noodles as litmus paper to test the acidity/alkali nature of kitchen products. It was quiet funny.

This talk on a brief history of electronics (cor look at that guys valves!) was really interesting and was one that I lernt some new stuff - stuff that is relavent to a young adult sci-fi book I am writing at the moment.

Look at those Valves!

This was the other half of the pendulum talk but focused more on the fear reaction that Suze had had whilst taking part in the flying trapeze when she is petrified of heights!

Talk on Fear at Science Show Off

This talk was on termites which again was not only entertaining - especially as it involved hissing cockroaches - I had been looking at some earlier on Saturday at the School fete along with pygmy hedgehogs. This talk is another one that is going to provide ideas and material for the fiction writing - oh yes!

I didn't manage to get a photo of everyone 🙁 And I need to get better at photography and maybe even get a nice camera that works and doesn't need shaking.

Talk at Science Show Off

I really enjoyed the show 🙂 I'm also hoping there are going to be more Skeptics In The Pub stuff as I made it too very little this week due to the fall at the beginning :/
