Neuroscience Rock Music, Snake Charmers, and More

This weekend, as part of World Maker Faire, TalkingScience will present three performances of the Rock-It Science Cabaret, a science variety show featuring scientists and performers illustrating principles of physics, chemistry, and biology.

Ira Flatow, host of NPR’s live news/talk show Science Friday, will introduce the Rock-It Science Cabaret, and will be available at Science Friday’s booth at Maker Faire to meet and talk to fans after he leaves the Science Stage on Saturday.

Each of the Rock-It Science Cabaret’s three performances will feature a different program, with acts including:

  • Brainy music by The Amygdaloids, NYU neuroscientists led by Joseph LeDoux who sing about how the inside of your head works (Special note: Beautiful Brain editor Noah Hutton will be sitting in on drums for the Amygdaloids on Saturday)
  • Serpentina the Snake Charmer from Coney Island, who can show you how to make friends with big snakes;
  • Incredible science demos that you can take part in;
  • Science punk rock, green rap music, and more.
