WHAT IS DOMESTIC SCIENCE?

That bedtime cup of hot chocolate next to you, the alarm clock within your reach, the banana in your fruit bowl, and that other object near you… Yes, that one right there. It’s totally covered in science too, and the Nerds will help reveal it.

In a world where everything is shorter and sharper than ever before – TED talks, the 5:2 diet, High Intensity Interval Training – Festival of the Spoken Nerd looks to impart bite-size learning about the everyday objects in your life. It will pop into your brain before you sleep and allow your sub-conscious to turn you into a know-it-all genius* while you sleep.

Stand-up mathematician Matt Parker, experiments maestro Steve Mould and geek songstress Helen Arney bring you smash-and-grab science education. They’re all equal parts award-winning comedians and fully qualified science nerds, making them the perfect combination of wit and wisdom. Recorded in front of a live audience, get your intensive hit of comedy, science and live experiments all from the comfort of your bed or as you drive home.
