Event description

Demos, dancing and diagrams collide in Sci-Tunes, as comedy science troubadour and science teacher Jonny Berliner shows you how to rock out musically and geologically with a show of curriculum -inspired songs exploring everything from the physics of falling eggs to cosmological comparisons with kumquats! And it's definitely the most exciting way to revise for your GCSE's too. 

This talk is particularly suitable for ages 12+.

About the speaker

Science troubadour, Jonny Berliner, is a pioneer of the Geekpop genre. His unique geeky brand of comedy science songs were originally commissioned for the Guardian Science Weekly podcast and have now been sung in all sorts of scientific places. 
He’s sung about DNA at Cambridge’s Laboratory of Molecular Biology, Michael Faraday at the Royal Institution, and the Higg’s boson at the LHC! He’s performed alongside Robin Ince and Brian Cox at the Hammersmith Apollo, been the warm up act for Richard Dawkins, been featured on the Radio 4 Rambling Show, and played science festivals up and down the country. 
Jonny is also an experienced science educator in the formal and informal education sectors, a playwright who has penned straight plays and musical comedies for both adult and young audiences and a versatile multi-instrumentalist.
