Description

Using dark humour and a good dose of brain power, three scientists reveal their stories: what is it like to do research in everyday life? Between anecdotes of late nights in the lab and the need for alcohol consumption, we also get an exciting peek into science and cutting-edge research. To guide you on this journey, our eclectic MC, also a scientist, will keep you on your toes with random science fact(oid)s you wished you knew already. They say smart is the new sexy; these brilliant performers are the quintessential expression of this.
