Have you been paying attention to the news this year?

Can you tell a real headline from The Onion? How much do you actually know about science? The Science News Showdown will test your knowledge of this year’s funniest and most far-fetched science stories, so get your thinking caps on and comedy team names ready for an evening of science, news, and nerdiness. There will be super exciting prizes for the winners, and consolation and sympathy for everyone else. The team with the best pun name will get a smug feeling of satisfaction, as decided by Jay and Jess, your quizmasters for the evening. Join us at 6:30pm for mulled wine and mince pies, and the quiz will start at 7:30. There isn’t a dress code, but Christmas jumpers are strongly encouraged.

As always, the event is free to members and non-members are welcome.

You can join Stempra on the evening for a whole £15, which means you will get to attend all Stempra events in 2015 for free – everyone’s favourite price! Email to register.
