What do fish, robots, aliens and Pokemon have in common? Free #openscience talks on Nov 1st. #ubc #vancouver
by David Ng
Answer: A line up that I’ve set up who will participate in an OPEN SCIENCE roster of UBC speakers.
Here you’ll get a chance to see: (1) the environmentally critical work of a world class fisheries lab; (2) hear the feisty tale of a professor who confronted NASA on some pretty shoddy science; (3) enjoy the antics of a science literacy advocate whose crowd-sourcing projects could double as a comedic act; (4) and check out a room full of kick ass robots, all prototyped in a special UBC class all about imaginative equipment and robot design.
