Soon after that, it was off to The Festival of the Spoken Nerd show - a (as you may have guessed) fairly brainy science-based comedy show. We were probably one of the few crowds in the world you could tell a combinatorics joke to and people would actually laugh (and wouldn't just be humoring you). Our show finished up just before the fireworks display scheduled to finish off the night.
What an incredible event! 100+ creators and over 700 members of the public. @ThinkerCon 2018 was a great success. Thanks to all our attendees, volunteers, staff, and especially sponsors (looking at you, @YouTube). @RocketCenterUSA was the perfect location. pic.twitter.com/QOGhPzTRRa— Henry Reich (@minutephysics) November 18, 2018
We made our way outside where speakers (along with quite a few car sound systems) were broadcasting the local NPR station. Destin had arranged with them to air the show as he and several other creators discussed the chemistry behind firework colors and combustion so that anyone in Huntsville in view of the Rocket Center could enjoy it as well. It was a great way to end the night!
