Picture This – Big Ideas in Science
Interested in science, in art? Curious about comics, drawing, and how art and science can combine to tell great tales? Creativity, collaboration, comic style illustration, & sensational science come together with microbe mayhem & magnificent stories of scientific discovery. Great for young folk from around 9 up, teens, adults & anyone with a keen sense of curiosity!
Join Sarah L’Estrange as she wrangles a panel of wildly talented writers, illustrators and scientists who use the graphic novel and comic book style to bring science to life. Lorna Hendry and Bernard Caleo (How to Win a Nobel Prize written with Barry Marshall) together with Dr Gregory Crocetti and Ailsa Wild (The Invisible War – a Tale on Two Scales) will tell us and show us how they do it!
During WWI a war was waged on soldiers from both sides that was far more deadly than any military tactic.This indiscriminate killer slayed soldiers, nurses, victors and losers — it was dysentery. The Invisible War delves into the battle between the body and the microbes that ran rife in trench warfare through the eyes of a nurse who went from carer to patient.
