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

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.
