The Laborastory

Price: $10

Existing at a point where science meets storytelling, Laborastory is a night of five scientists telling stories about personal heroes from their field.

In just ten minutes, speakers from a range of diverse backgrounds give insight into everything from biology to ecology, and psychiatry to physics.

Inspired by The Story Collider in Boston which invites speakers to tell a story of how science has affected their everyday lives, the Melbourne series has proven to be quite popular in engaging audiences with the world of science.

Sometimes serious but often funny, this different take on storytelling will switch on your scientific brain and you might even learn something!
