Aaron Freeman is a renaissance man: a comedian, science enthusiast, and neuroscience instructor. For years he has combined his skills as a comedian with his passion for teaching the world about science. At C2ST Speakeasy he will talk about comedy as a tool for teaching, and how educators can learn a thing or two from comics. C2ST’s own “Comedian-In-Residence” will wax comic about his sci-curious observations on his three favorite subjects. His 30 minute talk will give examples of his education efforts, like “The laws of attraction in physics and romance”, the physiology of why some sperm don’t like each other, and why some rats do. And he’ll share his affection for the neurotransmitter involved in lust, curiosity, the desire to make people laugh and our ability to guffaw. He will show some of the comic science videos he’s created for the C2ST website and twitter feeds, and invite members of the audience to share some of their favorite science jokes.
