Ig Nobel Prizes 2022

Environmental & Science Education, STEM, Nature of Science, History of Science, Miscellaneous.

The 32nd First Annual Ig Nobel Prize Ceremony was held September 15, 2022--entirely on-line.

The prizes--ten new ones--"were awarded (for research on) things that make people LAUGH, then THINK."

The ceremony is described in the sidebar and this year's elements are described below the video link, including the Nobel laureates who handed them out--chemistry, economics, physics, physiology or medicine.  A new mini-opera premiered - The Know It All Club. The 24/7 Lectures tell what three great thinkers are thinking about, first in 24 seconds, then in 7 words.

The traditional Welcome, Welcome Speech and the traditional Goodbye, Goodbye Speech can be heard.

"And other things."

These are a great deal of fun and will make you THINK. And a must if you've never heard of seen it before.
