Dr Lisa Gershwin

You may know of Dr Lisa Gershwin as the jellyfish lady. She’s discovered more than 200 new species of jellyfish (plus one dolphin!), and written three best-selling books on these stingy jigglers, along with more than a hundred peer-reviewed papers and industry reports and two TEDx talks. Lisa is still blushing over being named this year by the Science Show on ABC Radio National as one of the Top 100 Australian Scientists (of all time!). These days, Lisa shares her fascinations of things that glow in the dark through her Glow Shows and Glow Tours.

A Seat at the Table

Beaker Street Festival’s pay-it-forward initiative, A Seat at the Table, helps make our science and art offerings accessible to those who can’t afford to purchase a ticket. When you buy a ticket you have the option to donate towards the cost of a stranger’s ticket. You won’t know who you’ve helped, but your donation will go directly towards allowing someone else to access this great event. All donations $2 and over are tax-deductible.

If you’d like to request one or two free tickets, please let us know. If we can offer you a seat, we’ll notify you by email.
