Rat Skool #7: Subject Lottery Presentations - Thursday March 21, 7:00 pm

Some great topics:

    • Black Holes
    • LSD
    • Why Dentristry is So Expensive
    • The Difference Between Mice & Rats

How does the subject lottery work? 

The subjects are decided by a completely random lottery, as are the people who are presenting on them. At each event we ask people to submit topic ideas.

We also collect names of people willing to do presentations on topics they most likely know little about! Then a few names are drawn and a few topics are drawn and those people prepare a short (5-15min) presentation for the next session the following month.


Come on out to listen to some interesting presentations!

Rat Skool Subject Lottery Presentations!

 
 
How does the subject lottery work, you ask?
 
These subjects, and the people presenting them, have been selected using a random lottery. At each event we collect topics that you would like to see someone else present on. We also collect names of people willing to do presentations on topics they (probably) know very little about! A few names are drawn, and a few topics are drawn. Those people then prepare a short (5-15min) presentation for the next session! 
 
 
 Subjects are...
 
-Fruit Flies
-Inspiring Women Throughout History
-Life on Mars
-Ants
