The Paterson Allyn Williams Science Hub held a Masked Ball on Zoom that experimentally proved that you CAN have fun on Zoom. Highlights of the 21 August event included an interview with Dr Karl (who’s favourite plague is the Bubonic, but not for the reason you might think), lots of fun dancing and a wonderful Q&A with Dr Mark Temple, developer of the Coronacode musical works based on the DNA code of Covid.
The 200 odd party-goers had an energetic and informative time – it may not have been quite as good as Dungog’s Masked Balls are IRL, but it will do till they can come back (and the event was free too).
Dr Temple’s intriguing interview, the full interview with Dr Karl, and many more highlights can be found on the PAW Science Hub’s new YouTube Channel –
It’s a great place to mix science, art and fun.
This event was supported by Inspiring Australia as part of National Science Week and if you would like to find out more about Dr Temple’s video visit https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYtiR9XcY0kUagbkgJW0kVg.
