There’s a buzz this National Science Week as Dr Karl Kruszelnicki and friends join forces, live on stage at Sydney Town Hall.

Take a ride with Dr Karl through the past 100 years of the greatest scientific discoveries and innovations that changed our lives forever.

Today’s thinkers will do the same, but how? Dr Karl will talk to four future-focused researchers poised to blast our futures into the stratosphere.

  • Professor Anita Ho-Baillie is it possible to double the efficiency of a solar panel on your roof from 20% to 40%?
  • Professor Emma Johnston whose marine ecology research covers everything from bushfires and invasive species, to marine pollution (macro and micro plastics).
  • Associate Professor Michael Bowen whose neuroscience research aims to treat opioid addiction and help tackle the devastating opioid crisis.
  • Professor Geordie Williamson whose research is harnessing the power of AI to attack problems in mathematics, shedding light along the way on what current AI can and cannot do.
