Let's watch the Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony

The 2013 IgĀ® Nobel Prize Ceremony & Lectures will be streamed live from Harvard's Sanders Theatre on Thursday, September 12.

  • The 23nd First Annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony will introduce ten new Ig Nobel Prize winners. Each has done something that makes people laugh then think. The winners travel to the ceremony, at their own expense, from several continents. The Prizes are handed to them by a group of genuine, genuinely bemused Nobel Laureates, in Harvard's historic, largest theater filled with 1100 improbable persons, everything webcast live.

Here in the Triangle, we'll gather in the Daily Planet theater inside the NC Museum of Natural Sciences to watch, cheer and celebrate science. Brian Malow, science comedian and curator of the Daily Planet, will be our host.

It's free.

It's for science!

The webcast starts at 6 p.m., but come as early as 5:30 to mingle and converse.

Refreshments - coffee, beer, desserts and more - will be available for purchase in the Daily Planet Cafe.

After the ceremony, wander the museum - it's open to 9 p.m. on Thursdays.

This should be of interest to the Science Communicators of North Carolina, #TriSciTweetup, ScienceOnline and others.
