Zombie Science: Worst Case Scenario

Acclaimed Theoretical Zombiologist Doctor Howe presents a spoof tutorial on the real science behind a Zombie epidemic. Zombie Science: Worst Case Scenario puts you at the heart of a hypothetical Zombieism outbreak and teaches you what to do when the inevitable Zombie pandemic occurs. Certified by the Zombie Institute for Theoretical Studies, the tutorial features a multi-media presentation, practical demonstrations and audience participation.

Zombie Science: Worst Case Scenario focuses on identifying, containing and controlling disease, and at key points in the show, the audience is invited to vote on courses of action that will determine the outcome of the show. Only science can save you from the worst case scenario.

Zombie Science: Brain of the Dead

Zombie Science: Brain of the Dead lifts the lid on the Zombie skull and peers into the brain of the infamous movie monster. Presented by expert Zombiologist Doctor Howe, you will learn about the science of Zombies using interactive demonstrations and a multi-media presentation. 

In this spoof lecture you will learn which parts of the brain a Zombie disease would have to attack in order to produce the symptoms seen in Zombie films. Audience members will also be invited to remove Zombie ticks from a patient’s arm, and try out specialised goggles that let you see in Zombie vision.  This is the science you need to survive the inevitable Zombie apocalypse.
