This in from the CSIRO which sounds like fun:

CSIRO Discovery presents an evening of science fun for grown-ups, beginning with an explosive science show from Graham Walker from ‘Science Show-Offs’.

. experience Discovery and its new and existing exhibits

Get your hands dirty with sci-art games, listen to tunes scratched by local DJ, and sip science-themed cocktails whipped up by the mix-masters from the ACT branch of the Australian Science Communicators.

The evening will conclude with our After Dark science Trivia Competition. Great prizes are on offer – the members of the winning table will receive one iPod each!
