Science (and science writing) begins with questions. They can be sensible questions, like “Why is the sky blue?” But even better, they can be silly questions!

Award-winning science author Isabel Thomas will take you on a whirlwind tour of the funniest questions asked by scientists – showing how silly questions lead to serious science! You’ll discover how caterpillars are helping to tackle plastic pollution, what levitating frogs and the world’s most amazing material have in common, and of course, whether cats are liquid or solid! You’ll also find out why children ask the best questions of all!

Audience members are invited to submit their most curious questions in advance, for a chance to see them answered during the event. Remember, the sillier the better!

Isabel Thomas will be appearing virtually.
