Everything Dinosaur Included in “Talking Science” Programme
A team member from Everything Dinosaur has been invited to talk about dinosaurs as part of a series of prestigious science events being organised by the Science and Technology Facilities Council. Joining the likes of professors discussing space travel, leading academics introducing the latest advances in stem cell research and scientists explaining the Big Bang theory, Mike Walley (Everything Dinosaur) has been asked to present an update on dinosaur discoveries.
“Dinosaurs from Top to Bottom” with Everything Dinosaur
The monthly series of lectures take place at the world famous Daresbury Laboratories (Cheshire), a centre for scientific research and engineering. Everything Dinosaur’s presentation, entitled “Dinosaurs from Top to Bottom” has been booked for the key Easter holiday lecture. The presentation will take place on the 6th April 2016.
The Science and Technology Facilities Council organise a number of outreach events each year with the aim of engaging the public in scientific debate. Everything Dinosaur’s family orientated science lecture featuring the likes of Tyrannosaurus rex and Triceratops is bound to be a firm favourite
Commenting on Everything Dinosaur’s participation in the Talking Science lecture programme, Mike Walley stated:
“It’s an honour to be invited to take part in such a highly respected programme. We are already working on the script and our aim will be to inform, educate and amuse a family orientated audience.”
Tickets will be limited and for further details: Talking Science 2015/2016
With a strong reputation for providing dinosaur themed workshops in school, Everything Dinosaur undertakes a lot of outreach activities and public engagement as part of a wider brief to help young people understand what fossils can tell scientists about life in the past.
