Once again, The MIT Press Bookstore is proud to partner with some Improbable friends to bring you a half-afternoon of improbably funny, informative, brief(!), high-spirited public lectures, in which the new Ig Nobel Prize winners will attempt to explain what they did, and why they did it.
The Ig Nobel Prizes are intended to celebrate the unusual, honor the imaginative--and spur people's interest in science, medicine, and technology. On Thursday evening at Harvard, ten prizes are awarded to people who have done remarkable things, some of them admirable, some perhaps otherwise. On Saturday, we invite the winners to MIT and give them five minutes to describe and/or defend their work, then respond to insightful questions from the audience. Here's your chance to chat with an Ig Nobel Laureate!
Please join us!
All Ig Nobel Prize activities are organized by the Annals of Improbable Research. The Informal Lectures are hosted by the MIT Press Bookstore
