Come to CHF on Thursday, September 30, to watch the 2010 Ig Nobels on a live, Web-streamed feed.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. 

At 7:00 p.m. our special guest for the evening will talk about being onstage for the Ig Nobels in 1999. Natasha Rosenberg, the original Miss Sweetie-Poo, will talk about chasing overtime speakers off the Summers Theater Stage by saying, “Please stop! I’m bored!”  

Each year another 8-year-old girl takes the role that Rosenberg pioneered in 1999. She is currently a sophomore at the University of Pennsylvania.

The Ig Nobel Prizes honor achievements that first make people laugh and then make them think. Each year, in a gala ceremony at Harvard University, 1,200 splendidly eccentric spectators watch the winners step forward to accept prizes handed out by genuinely bemused genuine Nobel laureates.

Watch it all on the big screen at CHF. As an added bonus, the Museum at CHF will stay open late to excite and delight attendees.

Popcorn will be served. BYOB.

Registration is strongly encouraged.
