Science for Schools lecture series

A series of school-friendly lectures presented by our Faculty of Science.

Key Stage 5 students will hear our scientists and mathematicians discuss some of the hot topics in their subject. There’s the chance to ask questions afterwards and chat one-to-one with academics.
