Can science explain what makes good design? Are designers and scientists really that different? Or are they both just explorers searching for truth in different ways?
We celebrated the intersections of Science and Design at the Sydney Design Panel with a celebrity panel featuring Tom Gordon, Chris Reid, Wendy Davis and Laura Jade Hindes. We explored everything from optical illusions to corpse piles to redneck science. The ‘show and tell’ sections of the podcast were a hit, as audience members got a sneak peek at the inner workings of James’ brain, Tom made a plug for his eco-friendly shirt and everyone got to take home a slime mould!
Once again we crowned a science champion and Tom Gordon took home a one-of-a-kind In Situ Science trophy for winning the ‘Name that Scientist/Artist/Explorer Type Person Quiz’!
