In this seminar, Professor Mike Gore, physicist, engineer, founder of Questacon, orator, ranconteur, and CPAS fix-it man, will talk about his more than 30 years’ experience presenting science shows in Canberra and across the world. With demonstrations, anecdotes and a bucketload of humour, Mike will reflect on where his show ideas came from, the highlights, the lowlights, what worked and what didn’t. A must for anyone with an interest in science communication history and the practicalities of making up a discipline as you go along.
