Ig Nobels are coming to Dundee (and Aberdeen, sort of...)

The Ig Nobel awards are given to research that makes you laugh and makes you think.  It takes place at Dundee University on Saturday the 13th of March at 6pm.  The event is open to the public and tickets are free (but you need to book in advance). You can book tickets online (under “Other Free Lectures“)



This years topics include:

  • how your underwear could save you from certain death,
  • why you should always keep a look out for flirtatious ostriches,
  • how to avoid problems when using with the word ‘The’,
  • who invented and wore the World’s first false nose AND
  • the best way to avoid sword-swallowing injuries from the author of the penetrating medical report “Sword Swallowing and Its Side Effects.”

If you can’t make it to Dundee then the event is being streamed, live, to the Kings College Conference centre in Aberdeen, again, tickets are free but you need to book in advance and be in your seat by 5:45 pm!  It looks like being a good evening.
