Lines of Best Fit is an improvised comedy show that brings together scientists and improvisors for a night that's sure to tickle your brain.

This National Science Week, we're celebrating the work of researchers from the University of Sydney Nano Institute, learning about how they're helping to detect viruses, create solar fuels, keep your eyes healthy, and more.

Come along to hear about exciting new science and then watch the spontaneous reactions of the improvisors as they create hilarious scenes inspired by the science. Featuring talks from Professor Corinne Caillaud, Zahra Lotfibakalani, Dr Fengwang Li, Professor Anita Ho-Baillie, Professor Stephanie Watson, and Dr Girish Lakhwani.

Lines of Best Fit was created as part of Olivia McRae's PhD project, which explores novel and creative ways of communicating science to the public. As part of her research, Olivia is collecting data at these shows, meaning the performances are filmed and you may be asked to answer some questions. If you would like more information about participating in this research, you can read the Participant Information Statement for audiences.

This initiative is supported by Inspiring Australia as part of National Science Week.
