Improbable Research Saturday night in Seattle

Join us Saturday night, February 15, at the Improbable Research show at the AAAS Annual Meeting, Grand Hyatt Seattle, 71 Pine Street (in Princessa Ballrooms 1 & 2),

The annual Improbable Research session will, this year, include:

  • Marc Abrahams, founder of the Ig Nobel Prize ceremony
  • Theresa McKeon, 2019 Ig Nobel Prize winner for using a simple animal-training technique— called “clicker training” —to train surgeons to perform orthopedic surgery.
  • Kazutaka Kurihara, 2012 Ig Nobel Prize winner for creating the SpeechJammer — a machine that disrupts a person’s speech, by making them hear their own spoken words at a very slight delay.
  • (Brief!) Dramatic readings from improbable research studies, some of which have won Ig Nobel Prizes.
  • and other stuff.

This session is open free to the public.  Bring friends. (Seating is limited—arrive early if you want seats.) #AAASmtg

BONUS EVENT the next day

The next day—Sunday, February 16, at noon—join us for some additional, dramatic readings from improbable research studies, at Archie McPhee, 1300 N 45th St, Seattle. The Archie McPhee event, too, is free, and open to everyone.
