Science in Action Autumn 2018 - inspirational days for KS4 students
Tue, 4 Dec 2018
Join us in 2018/19 for a special programme of science for year 10 and year 11 students. Each day features five renowned scientists who will describe their work and put classroom science into the context of modern society. These days are thought-provoking, inspirational and a valuable opportunity for students to realise their potential.
Marty Jopson, Science presenter - 'ZAP! The story of electricity'
Greg Foot, Science presenter and communicator - 'Deep ocean lab'
Sujata Kundu, University of Surrey - 'Super science!'
Tom Warrender, Medical Mavericks - 'The human guinea pig: Inside the NHS...and Tom!'
