Basingstoke IVC Science Cafe invite you to this free Royal Society talk titled "Earthquakes, pasta and statues"

ADVANCE BOOKING IS REQUIRED FOR THIS TALK.

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/lego-lost-at-sea-registration-315538874267

Cafe Scientifique is a national movement for science and technology in casual settings: each has its own character but all are fun, engaging, informal and explore fascinating ideas in science and technology.

Cyber Cafe Sci is online - capturing the cafe experinece through the informal Gather platform that lets you watch, listen, and join in if you wish.

SUMMARY
At this event we join a conversation with Tracey Williams - beach cleaner and beach comber, collector of Lego Lost at Sea and author of Adrift - to talk about Lego (obviously), plastic pollution, Cornwall, ocean currents, green dragons and whatever else comes to mind.

Writer and beachcomber Tracey Williams has always been intrigued by chance finds and the stories and folklore behind them, from shells and sea glass discovered on childhood holidays in Cornwall to flints and fossils unearthed in fields.

In 1997, after finding thousands of pieces of sea-themed Lego washed up on beaches in South Devon, she became interested in the changing nature of beach combing and began to research the age and origin of many of the man made items she discovered. Her plastic finds sparked an internet phenomenon on Facebook and Twitter, and led to insights into ocean currents, shipping accidents, plastic pollution, and what happens to plastic in the sea.

SPEAKER
Tracey's best selling book: "Adrift - the Curious Tale of the Lego Lost at Sea" is a beautiful book, telling a fascinating story, a warning of the impact of plastic pollution, and an inspiration to anyone to check the beach beneath their feet for unexpected treasures.

Tracey lives in Cornwall in an old house by the sea with her dog Jess, surrounded by piles of books and an ever-growing mound of beach finds.

ticket   Uea: Intersection Of Medicine And The Humanities
Thu 26 May 2022 - 18:30 to 19:30
ONLINE AND IN-PERSON AT THE ROYAL INSTITUTION OF GREAT BRITAIN, LONDON

YOU'RE INVITED TO THE NEW UEA LASDUN LECTURE

What is the intersection of medicine and the humanities? At our first London-based event in over two years, we will explore this emerging field of research with a very special panel event.

On the surface of things, these two subjects might seem unrelated. Join us to hear three leading UEA academics – Professor (and author of The Language of Kindness: A Nurse’s Story) Christie Watson, Dr Harriet Cooper and Professor Sally Hardy – give their insights into how medicine and the humanities converge to create a more holistic approach to healthcare.
 
What better place to host such an event than The Royal Institution of Great Britain, London. A venue with huge cultural and historical significance – and at the forefront of introducing new teachings in science to the public. It truly is a spectacle within itself and one not to be missed.

And – if that wasn’t enough – you will have the chance to see the work of recent UEA graduate, Dr Lena Ibrahim. Now working as an academic junior doctor at the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital, she began creating beautiful portraits of NHS staff to unwind after a stressful shift. A fantastic example of how medicine and the humanities can overlap in practice.

The event is open to all and will be followed by a Q&A and drinks reception. Read on for registration information.

Can't make it on the night? A recording of the event will be made available on our UEA Public Events YouTube channel the day after the event for you to watch and share.

Royal Soc: Historical View Of Women In Mathematics
Mon 6 Jun 2022 - 18:30 to 19:30

Tickets / Register:   royalsociety.org/science-events-and-lectures/2022/06/wilkins-bernal-medawar ...  

Professor June Barrow-Green, winner of the 2021 Wilkins-Bernal Medawar Medal, joins us to explore the subject of "The historical representation of women in mathematics".

PRIOR BOOKING IS REQUIRED TO ATTEND THIS ONLINE AND IN-THEATRE TALK:

https://royalsociety.org/science-events-and-lectures/2022/06/wilkins-bernal-medawar/

SUMMARY

From medieval times to the modern day, female mathematicians, real and fictional, have been represented in a variety of ways, both in pictures and in words. These depictions allow us to learn about the women portrayed and about the attitudes towards them prevailing at the time.

Professor June Barrow-Green, winner of the 2021 Wilkins-Bernal Medawar Medal, joins us to explore this as well as the deeper questions, like what effect do these moments captured in time have on modern-day viewers and readers? How did these representations shape the types of mathematical knowledge women were able to claim? Do they continue to marginalise the mathematical expertise of women? And how can they be used to encourage the participation of women in the mathematical community today?

This event is the 2021 Wilkins-Bernal-Medawar Prize Lecture, which is awarded to recognise excellence in a subject relating to the history of science, philosophy of science or the social function of science. Professor June Barrow-Green was given the award for her research in 19th and 20th century mathematics, notably on historical roots of modern computing, dynamical systems and the three-body problem. Her work places special emphasis on the under-representation of women in historical narratives and in contemporary mathematics. Her recent work includes diversifying the mathematical curriculum.

Attending the event
  • The event is free to join and there is no registration required.
  • Live subtitles will be available.  Attending in person

ADVANCE BOOKING IS REQUIRED FOR THIS TALK.

Cyber Cafe Sci is online - capturing the cafe experinece through the informal Gather platform that lets you watch, listen, and join in if you wish.

SUMMARY

At this event we join a conversation with Emanuele Ziglioli - a SatNav engineer who knows how GPS really works, why it doesn't, and how to fix it.

We all know SatNav is awesome - but few of us know just how amazing it is that it works at all. Navigation quite literally not only at, but by, the speed of light: with your phone in your hand, swinging about like crazy as you walk or run or cycle, the GPS signals are jiggered and confused and confounded in ways that require us to know all about Einstein's Relativity, Doppler shifts, shadows, reflections, and bendy light paths. Small wonder it sometimes isn't perfect - and even greater wonder how engineers measure, calibrate, and compensate for so many complex and difficult perturbations to make it work as well as it does.
