On 11 December Royal Holloway, University of London's popular Science for Schools Lecture Series ended with the Geography Department tackling one of the most important questions today; are humans responsible for climate change?
The lecture series began on the 14th October, coinciding with national Biology Week, with Professor George Dickson introducing students to his research on muscular dystrophy. Other talks included using maths to beat the system, the history of Latin Squares, why we should care about malicious software, the rise of superconductors and the impact of plate tectonics on our daily lives.
The lectures were a great opportunity for school students to glimpse the variety of areas available to study in science at university. The lectures were hosted by the following departments: Biological Sciences, Mathematics

Psychology department will also be doing a talk on Laughter, prejudice ad unfamiliar faces during Royal Holloway's Science Festival. For more information and to book please visit our event page.
