12th meeting – Marc Abrahams: “A science award that makes you laugh, then think”

The first TED talk that we watched during our 12th meeting was the talk of Marc Abrahams with the title: “A science award that makes you laugh, then think”

Marc Abrahams, founder of the Ig Nobel awards, explores the world’s most improbable research. In this entertaining and thought-provoking talk, he tells stories of truly weird science  and  makes us pay attention to the fact that silliness may sometimes be  critical to boosting public interest in science.
