Quirks & Quarks

The Quirks Question Roadshow: June 4, 2015

For the very first time, we are bringing our annual Quirks Question RoadShow to Kitchener-Waterloo. And that means we needs your science questions

Ever looked up at the sky, and wondered - could an alien astronomer detect life on Earth? Or stared at your dog and asked yourself - does she experience the same joy when we hug as I do? Or looked at your own hands, and thought - why are some people left-handed? Well, those are just some of questions that the annual Quirks Question RoadShow will be answering. We've chosen 10 questions from our radio listeners, and we'll have 10 local scientists on hand to answer them. And you can be part of the audience. Join host Bob McDonald for the taping of the show at Perimeter Institute in Waterloo, Ontario on June 4, at 7:30pm, and hear the answers.

Tickets are free, but must be reserved through the Perimeter Institute at this site. They go on sale at 9:00am on May 19.

Hope to see you there!
