Need some entertainment in these difficult times? Join a Q&A Session hosted by Swinburne's School of Science, presenting the 2020 Ig Nobel Prize for Physics winners; Swinburne's own Ivan Maksymov and Andrey Pototsky. The session will be on Thursday, 22 October 2020 at 4pm via MS Teams Live.

Ivan and Andrey have already been awarded the prize at the 30th First Annual Ig Nobel Prize ceremony, on Thursday, September 17, 2020 via webcast. They have won the Physics Prize for determining, experimentally, what happens to the shape of a living earthworm when one vibrates the earthworm at high frequency.   

The Ig Nobel Awards honour research that make people laugh, then think.
