Nano-Lectures at the University of Tasmania

Not so very long after the Ig Nobel event at the University of Tasmania, students there engaged in a nano-lecture competition. Wayne Goninon reports that The idea was that students would describe their school in seven words:

Agricultural Science: We take cows and make ’em better

Aquaculture: Red fish, blue fish, breeding new fish

Architecture: The unholy union of art and engineering

Chemistry: Too much acid, explosives and stinky stuff

Computing: Coffee and pizza make for happy coding

Earth Sciences: Geology is not geography, you cretaceous cretin!

Engineering: Bridges are good but beer is better

Geography & Environmental Science: Geography is not geology, cabbage for brains!

Maths & Physics: Evaluating pi — Galactic nuclei — why oh why?

Plant Science: It’s okay officer, it’s for scientific use

Psychology: It’s all about getting a girlfriend, mate!

Zoology: We know who heads the food chain

The Engineering entry is frighteningly accurate
