Science storytelling: ASC Victoria AGM at the Laborastory, Wednesday 2 December‏

Come join ASC Victoria for our last hurrah of 2015 as we celebrate with our AGM followed by some of the best science stories of the year at the Laborastory.

The Laborastory brings together five scientists from different fields to tell the remarkable stories of the heroes of their field. Each story is just ten short minutes. They tell the tales of the tragedies and triumphs of the men and women who made science their passion, and left legacies of ground-breaking discoveries that inspire the scientists of today.

We have three tables reserved for ASC members to dine together, have a chat and then enjoy The Laborastory’s “Best of” end of year wrap up. This is your opportunity to hear what the ASC has planned for 2016, or to put your hand up for a role on the committee (further information about the AGM below).

No doubt these tickets will be in hot demand, to secure your ticket and spot on the table and have your say on the direction of the ASC for 2016 RSVP to George Aranda

Where: The Spotted Mallard. 314 Sydney Rd, Brunswick
When: Wednesday December 2nd , 2015
Time: The AGM will kick off just after 6pm
What: ASC members who attend the AGM get FREE entry into Laborastory and we will shout you a drink.

Need some inspiration? You can catch up on all Laborastories on YouTube before the event.
