This year we’re screening Hidden Figures (PG) which highlights the pivotal role three female African-American mathematicians played in getting the U.S. space program off the ground in the early 1960s. It’s the perfect film for a planetarium screening.
Halfway through the night, we’ll pause for a fascinating discussion featuring WA scientists who are experts on the topics featured in the movie. And of course, some delicious pizza* to see us through the rest of the evening.
The 2021 panellists are:
Dr Natasha Hurley-Walker (International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research, Curtin University)
Harrison Caddy (biomedical engineer, Harry Perkins Institute for Medical Research)
Professor Jingbo Wang (Director of the QUISA Research Hub, UWA)
Tickets are $7.50 (including food and a booking fee).
