What a brilliant idea! ANSTO is now running a series of informal quiz nights for the public whereby people vote whether a particular science fiction movie has some elements of truth based on current research. Films featured included Back to the Future, Star Trek, Star Wars and more. This night was hosted by Davod Koch from Channel 7 Sunrise program at UTS Sydney and was developed by the team at the Australian Nuclear Science & Technology Organisation’s Discovery Centre with National Science Week funding.

The quiz is graded on accuracy and speed using poling technology; just because you can answer fast doesn’t mean you’re going to win! How did I go? Not too bad; I was in front until the last 4 questions… oops!  A fun night and a solid way to engage the public the sciences. There should be more of these..
