Nerd Nite KW Episode 12 – March 20 – one year anniverary!

That’s right friends! It has been a whole year of Nerd Nite being in Kitchener Waterloo! Let’s celebrate with two super awesome presentations, trivia, and memories!

Wednesday March 20, 2013

8pm Rum Runner Pub downtown Kitchener

Andrew Rader (newly crowned winner of Discovery Channel’s Canada’s Greatest Know It All !!) will be talking about why our future in space won’t be Star Trek… but that’s ok. Andrew is a spacecraft engineer (, a frequent presenter at Nerd Nites around the world, and friend to all.

Ben Criger (Institute for Quantum Computing and Robocop fan to the extreme) will be telling us why we either love Total Recall and/or why we should love it. Some of you may believe that a new version of Total Recall was made, but Nerd Nite takes place in happy land where there is only ONE Total Recall movie starring Arnold Schwarzenerder.

Then the most fun trivia ever with possibly better prizes! (but really, what’s better than Kinder Surprises?).


Be a Nerd at THE MUSEUM March 13

For one night only, be a big kid and come to THE MUSEUM in downtown Kitchener to play with all the cool toys!

Wednesday March 13, 2013
The water table, Plasma Cars, the Star Lab and other super cool stuff that we would normally have to push little children over to play with will be ALL FOR US!

The event is from 6pm-9pm and then we can hit the pub if you like. Show up whenever you like during that time and just look for your friendly neighbourhood Nerd Nite hosts Charlotte, Ryan, and Eric!

This is a Pay what you can event (proceeds go to fund the Museum’s awesome programs) and there will be a cash bar courtesy of Imbibe.

Nerd Nite Episode 11 Feb. 27!!!

Episode 11 is here!

Wednesday Feb. 27 starting at 7:30pm (ish)

Join your super awesome nerd friends and fearless nerd leaders as we learn, drink, and be merry!

Talk one: ‘Science or Fiction’, adapted from a popular podcast, tests your knowledge of science news and your ability to think critically and judge whether something is likely to be actual science or just a masquerade.
Cory Albrecht is “just” a computer geek interested in how science and critical thinking influences how we view the world and helps us evaluate all the claims thrown at us from every direction.

Talk two is given by your Nerd Nite co-host: Mechanical Engineering masters program graduate, community artist, and Waterloo region nerd culture icon Ryan Consell. Ryan will be talking about and giving a live demonstration on yo yos. Feel free to bring your own for some instruction!

Followed by Eric’s friendly neighbourhood trivia and the worst prizes possible!
