Nerd Nite Season 3 Episode 28

Presentation #1: Local musician Juneyt Yetkiner will be giving us a musical demonstration and teaching us all about Flamenco music. Three time regional music award nominee Juneyt was destined from birth to be a musician. His name means “Soldier of Music” in his native tongue, and has proven to be a true foreshadowing of his life path. Juneyt has composed music for two television documentaries, and has built his career as a professional musician playing in and around his hometown of Kitchener-Waterloo and the GTA. Check out his website here:


Presentation #2: Thumbs Up for Radio Edutainment: Go Behind the Scenes of a Weekly Radio Show & Podcast

By day Rachelle Saunders makes websites with a Canadian I.T. company based out of Edmonton, but by night (and sometimes very early in the mornings) she is the Producer and Co-host of the weekly science radio show “Science for the People”, which is syndicated on radio stations across North America. She spends most of her off hours absorbing pop science books, keeping up with science news on the web, and interviewing interesting people about interesting things.

Presentation #3: Charlotte will talk about the upcoming space missions and astronomical events coming up in 2015. There are lots of reasons to have a space party this year!

Our Artist in Residence for the evening is also one of our presenters, Juneyt Yetkiner. We will have exclusive copies of his amazing CD to be raffled off during the evening. Raffle tickets are $1 each. He will also have some for sale (a great gift!).

We will top off the evening with our award winning trivia by our trivia overlord Eric Moon. The theme for this month’s trivia is snow! The prizes will of course, be terrible!

Be there and be square!
