About the series

The Department is host to six major lecture series, plus the Saturday Morning Science programme which sees some of the University’s top experts explore their specialist subjects across the scientific spectrum in public talks aimed at high school students and adults alike.

Saturday Morning Science

Saturday Morning Science is our public talks series aimed at young people or adults with an interest in modern science and the world around them. Through accessible talks and fielding questions, we hope to inspire further interest in the fascinating subjects that our speakers spend their whole careers researching in great detail. The programme sees some of the University’s top experts from not just Physics but biosciences, chemistry, computer sciences, earth sciences, engineering, mathematical sciences and psychology explore their specialist subjects in public talks aimed at high school students and adults alike.
