  • A short film of the Incredible Tale of Robot Boy

    In an extraordinary high-tech laboratory, a team of the world’s top scientists is attempting the impossible. Their mission is to create a robot with a real brain, pushing the boundaries of scientific discovery.

    They succeed, and Robot Boy is born!

    His world is the playground of the laboratory; it is where he belongs. Robot Boy knows the Scientists have an important job to do and he is there to help them, but sometimes he longs to explore beyond this world. Just as we all yearn to visit unique and extraordinary places, for Robot Boy the most phenomenal place of all is inside his own imagination.

    This 36-minute silent film, adapted from footage of the 2019 Theatre-Rites and Schauspielhaus Bochum stage production, takes us on a journey of curiosity and wonder – a poetic story about humanity, responsibility and life.

  • Science Sam (CA)

    Neuroscientist, Science Communicator, and Digital Media Producer Dr Samantha Yammine (Science Sam) loves talking about anything science, anywhere and everywhere. Samantha has created space for continued, multi-way dialogue about science that transcends geographical borders and the traditional gate-keeping of academia. Samantha has hosted a livestream with an astronaut aboard the International Space Station, presented her research on the streets at Toronto’s busiest intersection, talked ringside with Muay Thai fighters about performance anxiety, and showed off model and real brains at 1am in a Yurt during an all-night art festival. She leads interactive workshops on science communication, personal branding, and social media to teach scientists and STEM professionals the skills they need to share their science creatively.
