Come along to the Brisbane Comedy Festival this Sunday for the second Convince Me! debate
Embarking on dextrous dialectal disagreement this time will be physicist and food scientist Dr Joel Gilmore, cabaret star Lizzie Moore and comedian Andy Thompson. They'll face the might of philosopher Kevin Lowe, improviser and actor Amy Currie, and quantum computing expert Professor Andrew White
Another spectacular line-up of talent is readying itself for the second Convince Me! debate as part of Brisbane Comedy Festival.
Embarking on dextrous dialectal... disagreement this time will be physicist and food scientist Dr Joel Gilmore, cabaret star Lizzie Moore and comedian Andy Thompson.
They'll face the might of philosopher Kevin Lowe, improviser and actor Amy Currie, and quantum computing expert Professor Andrew White.
What will they debate? THEY DON'T KNOW YET! They'll find out at 4.30pm, and will then have just ONE HOUR to prepare their arguments! The debate proper starts from 5.30pm on the Turbine Platform at BRISBANE POWERHOUSE.
And don't forget it's FREE!
EQUS researchers have found a way to measure and understand cause and effect in the quantum world
The shortlist for Quantum Games is up on the EQUS website! Stay tuned for more information on how you can play the games during World Science Festival Brisbane
Are you procrastinating this morning? Try the Perimeter Institute's quantum quiz!
We did pretty well #justsaying
What do you know about quantum mechanics?
Take this quantum quiz by the Perimeter Institute to find out! You might be surprised by some cool information you already know, and you can learn fascinating facts about the things you don't know.
EQUS researchers Sally Shrapnel and Fabio Costa are quoted in this New Scientist article on a quantum time machine!
When and where does the future influence the past?
EQUS researchers David Tuckett, Prof Stephen Bartlett, and A/Prof Steven Flammia have found a quantum computing "hack" - a way to modify qubit surface codes, improving quantum error correction by up to 400%
In a mind trick reminiscent of Albert Einstein, Sydney scientists have honed the efficiency of the supercomputers of the future.
A theoretical breakthrough by University of Sydney physicists could quadruple the error margin quantum computers can tolerate without becoming dysfunctional. The researchers achieved the feat by “hacking” the software used to remove spontaneous errors in quantum computing hardware....
We are delighted to support this initiative! Find out about the outstanding recipients of the Indigenous scholarship to Science meets Parliament here
Meet the three recipients of our Indigenous scholarship to Science meets Parliament - Dr Kalinda Griffiths, Ms Amy Searle, and Mr Bradley Moggridge.
We are extr...emely proud to support these three to share their science with decision makers and other STEM professionals in two weeks.
We also want to say a big thanks to our scholarship sponsors - the Australian Academy of Science and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Engineered Quantum Systems.
EQUS Director Andrew White appeared on a World Science Festival Brisbane panel of physicists and potential users of quantum tech to discuss the possibilities and challenges that lie ahead. Listen to the ABC RN recording on the Science Show webpage.
Congratulations to Australian of the Year Professor Michelle Simmons!
We spotted some familiar books by EQUS alum Chris Ferrie at the State Library of Queensland on the weekend! Have you read any of them?
Submissions for Pitch it Clever close on February 12! $4,500 in prize money is up for grabs.
Imagine you jump into an elevator with a key decision-maker. You’ve got a chance to tell a university Vice-Chancellor, a politician, or a business leader why your research matters… and quickly.
Universities Australia challenges researchers to talk up their research in a 1-2 minute video. The video should aim to get leaders from across the country to become champions for your work....
We're ready for our last lab tours for National Youth Science Forum (NYSF)!

We sent five regional and remote science teachers to the Australian Science Teachers Association's STEM X Academy in January this year. Looks like a great time was had by all!
A five day professional learning program for primary and secondary teachers has kicked off in the Capital today.
The STEM challenge helps educators acquire skill sets to design, develop and implement their own teaching resources, in a bid to boost student engagement.
Apply for the Science Policy Fellowship Program by February 4!
The Australian Science Policy Fellowship Pilot Program gives scientists the opportunity to work in a Commonwealth Government department for one year. It strengthens the diversity of expertise in the Australian Public Service workforce by providing a pathway for scientists to become skilled policy practitioners.
The program is targeted at early- and mid-career researchers with up to 15 years post-PhD....
