The Ig Nobels are coming!

One of the key highlights of the annual science entertainment calendar is making a return to Imperial College in March, with an evening comprising of an oddly eclectic mix of science, opera and a small girl walking up to people who talk for too long 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 were handed out at MIT in the USA late last year, they travel around the globe putting on shows with various Ig Nobel award winners.

This year they return to Imperial College in Kensington on Friday 9th March (slightly earlier than usual, which may please one person I know who finds the usual date conflicts with a wedding anniversary!)

    9th March is a Friday, not a Thursday! But otherwise, thanks for the heads up …
