The Ig Nobels are coming!

What is one of the key highlights of the annual science entertainment calendar is making a return to Imperial College next month, with an evening comprising of an oddly eclectic mix of science, opera and a small girl walking up to people and saying “Please Stop, I’m Bored”.

If somehow you haven’t come across the Ig Nobels, then they are awarded each year for genuine scientific studies that “first make you laugh and then think”. Quite often, the topic is made even funnier by the pompous title granted to it in the formal write up.

Although the Ig Nobel awards are handed out at MIT late last year, they then travel around the globe putting on shows with various Ig Nobel award winners. This year they return to Imperial College in Kensington on Thursday 17th Mar 2011 from 6pm.
