Saturday 15th of May

Karl will enlighten you with funny facts on a range of topics that will get set your mind alight. 

Here’s your chance to ask all your burning science questions be they chemical, physical, technological, physiological, astrophysical or astronomical! Come on down!


Karl popularises science on ABC radio stations across Australia and, on the BBC, for several hours each week. Many of you will be familiar with the original talk back programme each Thursday on triple j from 11 am to midday. 2019 The United Nations awarded Dr Karl the UNESCO Kalinga Prize for the Popularisation of Science.

Karl has degrees in Physics and Maths, Biomedical Engineering, Medicine and Surgery and has worked as a physicist, tutor, film-maker, car mechanic, labourer, and as a medical doctor at the Kids’ Hospital in Sydney.

His enthusiasm for science is totally infectious and no one is better able to convey the excitement and wonder of it all than Dr Karl Kruszelnicki.

It's wondrous how many laughs you can have whilst listening to Dr Karl explanations.
