Becoming ‘The Incredible Hulk’ and debunking other myths about radiation

  • -

In movies, if you’re exposed to radiation you’re at a higher chance of gaining superpowers. However, if this was the case in real life, wouldn’t there be more radioactively induced superheroes and villains roaming the Earth?

Enter our hero scientist, Dr Gillian Hirth, an environmental radiochemist, the current Chair of the United Nations Scientific Committee on the Effects of Atomic Radiation (UNSCEAR) and Chief Radiation Health Scientist of the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA).

Dr Hirth will demystify the science around radiation and its effects on the human body. As a type of energy that we are exposed to everyday, it’s worthwhile understanding what effects radiation has on us. Join Dr Hirth and a panel of radiation experts as we talk radiation and help understand this invisible energy. It’ll be RAD.

Open to all ages and backgrounds - everyone is welcome.
