Ig Nobel Award Tour Show 2018

Mar 27, 2018, from 18:00 until 20:00, EPFL, Forum Rolex

Come and enjoy, laugh and think at the Ig Nobel Award Tour Show 2018 on Tuesday March 27 at 18:00 at EPFL, to discover how using a didgeridoo can treat obstructive sleep apnoea and snoring, to learn about some particular behavior of the mallard duck, and to find out when some people would be physically capable of running across the surface of a pond.

On Tuesday March 27, EPFL will welcome for the third time the Ig Nobel Award Tour Show, with Marc Abrahams and a line-up of Ig Nobel Prize winners, with the support of the NCCR MARVEL.

The Ig Nobel Prizes honor achievements that makes people laugh, and then think. The prizes are intended to celebrate the unusual, honor the imaginative — and spur people's interest in science, medicine, and technology.
