    Significant Figures

    Significant Figures

    n = 60 STEMpunk was given an incredible opportunity, to run an event for the Vivid Ideas festival called Significant Figures, where we interviewed a wonderful scientist with a panel or more excellent scientists, or significant figures! The panel of significant figures, Ivy Shih, Corey Tutt and Kirsten Banks, was to interview through games and questions, a mystery science guest, Associate Professor Tanya Latty from the University of Sydney, BUT... it was cancelled.      Boo! But we ran it anyway!!      Huzzah!! ...and this episode is that panel show, but instead of live, we did it online. Same people, same concept, just no live audience. This worked incredibly well. So fun, so learn, and so....ewwwww! Thanks to the amazing Ivy, Corey and Kirsten, andof course Tanya Latty. You are all wonderful.

    n = 59 Dr Space Junk In this episode, Tom interviews Alice Gorman about the usual things like how you got involved in STEM and Space Archeology. We talked about her beginnings, some actuall space archeology and most importantly, we left plenty unsaid for the next time we get Alice back on the podcast! You can Find Alice most places as @drspacejunk Alice Answered the question that Matthew asked about going to Mars, (which was a great answer!) and asked her own here. What work of art made a difference to how you thought about your science? Call to action: Firstly, read the book that Alice wrote, really! Read it! It is called Dr Space Junk Vs The Universe Alice recommends that you read the trilogy from C.S. Lewis called The Space trilogy. STEMpunk Merch To support the podcast we've decided to sell some podcast merchandise...With a difference. It takes 2,700 litres of water to make one t-shirt, so instead of making more things, we've re-used them. Our items are bought in an op-shop, then we write "STEMpunk" on it with a permanent marker. Due to the fact that these items are second hand, they will not be "perfect" but they certainly are unique! Head over to our STEMpunkPod Etsy store to get our merchandise.

    Shane, a microphone and Zeeshan.n = 57 What does Genetics, Boston, and being president have in common? In this episode of STEMpunk, Shane sits down with Zeeshan Siddiqui in chatting about his passions from his research in bioinformatics to inspirations about being a science communicator. Zeeshan is an honours student in the School of Biotechnology and Biomolecular Sciences (BABS) at UNSW Sydney. It has taken us a while to get this episode out, so you are in for a treat, it is a double episode! Wahoo! Moar Science! Zeeshan answered the question Mitch had about his past, and asked his own here. What were the latest three Science related books or articles that you read, and did you like them?“Thanks Zeeshan for the chat, and we look forward to seeing what you get up to in the future!

    STEMpunk live: Planets and Parables

    Dr Abigail Fraeman, Shane Hengst, Liz Landau, Tom Gordon, Dr Sarah Reeves.n = 56  On Tuesday 16 July 2019, STEMpunk went back to Wayward Brewery and were joined by special NASA guests for an evening of Planets and Parables. Dr Abigail Fraeman (Planetary Scientist) and Liz Landau (Science Story teller) and Dr Sarah Reeves (Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences) were the stars of a live recording of the STEMpunk podcast to mark 50 years since the Moon landing. “We went to the Moon and we returned humans safely, we should celebrate that,” said Science Communicator and STEMpunk producer Tom Gordon. “The 50th anniversary of the Moon landing is an event well worth celebrating and an opportunity to remember the hard work that went into it and what happened as a result.” “The significant anniversary of the Moon landing presents a great opportunity to talk about the future. And while we are at it, we talked about other space and Science related things.” STEMpunk Merch To support the podcast we've decided to sell some podcast merchandise...With a difference.

    n = 55 Action shot of Mitch being interviewed In this episode, Tom interviews Mitch Gibbs from the University of Sydney's School of Life and Environmental Science. Mitch studies Oysters and climate change. In Mitch's words, in this case, "climate change is not good, but not as horrifying as you'd think." After a very quick intro,Mitch and I chatted about indigenous science and then we went on to other topics like Marvel and black holes. This wasn't really an interview, more a great chat with a friend who has some fascinating and opinions and perspectives. We talked about Science, #PhDlyf, STEM and indigenous science. What did you learn from this episode? Mitch answered Annie's questions about diving into a black hole and asked his own here. If you could relive any moment from your past, what would it be and why?Call to action: Mitch's call to action could be summarised by Comic books and indigenous science, a healthy combination.
