ScienceGrrl inaugural “Because Science is for Everyone” public lecture
Professor Brian Cox’s lecture will cover our current knowledge of Particle Physics and the questions that remain to be answered, at a level suitable for GCSE and above.
Dr Heather Williams, Director of ScienceGrrl, will introduce the lecture and describe how an understanding of fundamental particle physics underpins her own field of physics, in Nuclear Medicine.
There will be a short time for questions afterwards.
The lecture is a fund-raising event - half the proceeds will go to ScienceGrrl, half to the University of Manchester’s Widening Participation Bursary Scheme.
We are grateful to Prof Brian Cox for donating his time and to the Ogden Trust who sponsoring the event. All the ticket proceeds will go to help fund our work in raising the profile of female scientists and enabling them to connect with and inspire young people to follow in their footsteps.
The lecture is open to everyone, but is designed for ages 15+.
This event is organised by ScienceGrrl. For more information visit:
