Care for some Nanotech in your trolley? Canberra

ABC Science at Tilley’s

LIVE FORUM: Care for some Nanotech in your trolley?

Saturday August 21

6pm-7.30pm (with live election updates!)


Drop into Tilley’s in Lyneham and check out the nano-trolley: a load of real and hypothetical products based on nanotechnology. This technology is now being used in everyday items including clothes, phones, computers, packaging, sunscreens and cosmetics – with many more in the pipeline.

Thought provocation by host Dr Paul Willis (ABC TV Catalyst).

Opinions and insights from experts – Dr Tim Senden (ANU), Professor Jim Williams (ANU), Dr Lyria Bennett Moses (UNSW), Dr Michael Biercuk (USYD).

Have a drink, have a listen, have your say. Bar and kitchen open.

* Why does everything change when things get really small?

* Why is nanotechnology so controversial?

* Is it safe?

* Do we need new laws to protect us and the environment?

Presented by ABC Science for National Science Week.
