SCIENCE OUT LOUD POPULAR SCIENCE TALK
World Science Festival: Cool Science for the Curious – Alan Duggan
Wednesday 25 June 2014, 17:30 for 18:00
Alan Duggan is the founding editor of Popular Mechanics magazine, South Africa’s leading science and technology title, and organiser of several successful conferences focusing on everything from home-grown inventions to cutting-edge science and technology. He and his team are in the process of arranging this year’s FutureTech conference, part of the official programme for World Design Capital Cape Town 2014.
Alan recently returned from New York, where he attended the annual World Science Festival, founded by theoretical physicist and best-selling author Brian Greene. In this talk, he will share some of his experiences and offer a few ideas for staging a similar event in Cape Town.
Science Out Loud popular science talks at the Cape Town Science Centre is a platform where speakers give freely of their time to inspire and connect citizens with science.
There is no charge to attend the talk, but donations are welcome. All funds received directly support our educational exhibits and activities.
Booking is recommended. Please call 021 300 3200 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to book your seat.
