Talking Science is back at Daresbury Laboratory, with the 2019/20 season of events having just been announced.
Now in its 21st year, these family friendly talks bring the worlds of science, engineering and research to life with a host of engaging and fun speakers. Between September 2019 and June 2020, we will be covering moon missions, rock guitar in 11 dimensions, DNA heroes, swarm engineering to the science of de-extinction and much more.
After a year offsite, Talking Science will once again take place at Daresbury Laboratory in the newly refurbished Lecture Theatre. The events are all open to the public and each has advice for age suitability. As well as listening to speakers from across the country talk about their specialist subject area, many of them offer interactive elements.
Wendy Cotterill, Senior Public Engagement Officer said: “Over 1,250 people enjoyed Talking Science when we took it on the road for 2018/19. This year we are back at the historic Daresbury Laboratory site and hope to inspire a whole new generation of scientists, researchers and engineers with talks covering a whole host of topics. Whether you are interested in Star Wars or space, drones or DNA, there is really something for everybody.”
The new season began on the 20 September with Dr Jackie Bell. A University of Liverpool PhD, Jackie talked about the moon, the Apollo missions, her own experience training as an astronaut for the BBC and the future of space travel.
