WIN CAFE SCI - KEEPING THE MARY ROSE SHIPSHAPE
Mon 5 Oct 2020 at: 19:30 to 21:00
https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/keeping-the-mary-rose-shipshape-tickets-121188434871

This event is hosted and arranged by William Vine, the Group Organiser for Winchester Cafe Scientifique.

Basingstoke science enthusiasts are invited to this talk on a very interesting subject by Prof Eleanor Schofield from the Mary Rose Trust. The subject of this evenings talk is “Where the arts meet science: Keeping the Mary Rose shipshape“.

Regrettably, the public health situation still means it is likely to be some time before we can resume live meetings. We have decided to try out some online events, using Zoom, a popular and well tested platform for online meetings, https://www.zoom.us/ , which many of you may be familiar with by now.

If it is successful, we may continue to broadcast talks from the Discovery Centre so that if people prefer not to be in a room with a large number of people they can still join in.

PRIOR BOOKING IS REQUIRED FOR THIS EVENT:

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/keeping-the-mary-rose-shipshape-tickets-121188434871

SUMMARY
The Mary Rose, a flagship of Henry VIII’s, sank off the coast of Portsmouth in 1545. Rediscovered in the 1960s, the following years saw the excavation of over 19,000 objects, culminating in the excavation of the hull in 1982. Materials vary from leather, wood, human remains to iron, bronze and lead, with items varying in size from minuscule dice to gun carriages capable of transporting 2-3 tonne cannons.

The conservation techniques and strategies employed over the last three decades will be discussed, alongside new materials and methods being developed to ensure the long term protection of this important cultural heritage.

SPEAKER
Prof. Eleanor Schofield is the Head of Conservation and Collections Care at the Mary Rose Trust. After completing her PhD in Materials Science at Imperial College London in 2006, she completed research posts at Stanford Synchrotron Radiation Laboratory and the University of Kent. She joined the Mary Rose Trust in 2012 and is now responsible for the conservation of the Mary Rose hull and associated artefacts, the care and management of the collection and research into novel conservation treatments and characterisation methods.

You will need the Zoom client installed on your computer, tablet or phone. Short video on using Zoom here:

https://www.youtube.com/embed/hIkCmbvAHQQ?rel=0&autoplay=1&cc_load_policy=1

Only one ticket needed per screen. If you are sharing with someone, they don’t need a separate ticket.

We will open the meeting from 7pm so people can settle in, chat etc. There will be a break between talk and Q&A when people can chat etc. It's not the same as live but closer than I thought

A recording will be available after the event on YouTube.

Our Facebook Group https://www.facebook.com/groups/wincafesci/?source_id=1457090591178602 provides an opportunity to share ideas and keep in touch. You are encouraged to post interesting science links and to comment or discuss.

SUMMARY
Why is the world the way it is? How did we get here? Does everything happen for a reason or are some things left to chance? Philosophers and theologians have pondered these questions for millennia, but startling scientific discoveries over the past half century are revealing that we live in a world driven by chance.

This talk showcases little-known inventors, particularly people of colour and women, who had a significant impact but whose accomplishments have been hidden by mythmaking, bias, and convention.

Science writer Ainissa Ramirez examines eight inventions, revealing the fascinating and inspiring stories on our relationships with technologies.

SPEAKER

Ainissa G. Ramirez is a science evangelist who is passionate about getting the general public excited about science.  

Dr Ramirez received her training in materials science and engineering from Brown University and Stanford University. Prior to being on the faculty at Yale, she was a research scientist at Bell Laboratories, Lucent Technologies, in Murray Hill, New Jersey were she did award-winning research. She has authored more than 50 technical papers, holds six patents, and has presented her work worldwide. 

She now focuses her energies on making science fun, and gave an impassioned called to action at TED on the importance of understanding science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM), which generated widespread enthusiasm. At Yale, she was the director of the award-winning science lecture series for children called ‘Science Saturdays’ and hosted two popular-science video series called ‘Material Marvels’ and ‘Science Xplained’.

https://www.rigb.org/whats-on/events-2020/october/public-the-hunt-for-new-batteries

SUMMARY
The hunt is on for the next generation of batteries that will power our electric vehicles and help our transition to a renewables-led future.

In this talk, Serena Corr will look at the science behind batteries, discuss why we are hunting for new batteries and investigate what tools we use to pave this pathway to discovery. Serena will show how researchers at the Faraday Institution are developing new chemistries and manufacturing processes to deliver safer, cheaper, and longer-lasting batteries and provide higher power or energy densities for electric vehicles.

SPEAKER

Serena Corr obtained her BA (2002) and PhD (2007) in Chemistry from Trinity College Dublin. She completed her PhD work on New Magnetic Nanostructured Materials with Professor Yurii Gun’ko, where she developed new magnetic materials for biomedical applications. In 2007, she began working as a postdoctoral researcher in the Materials Research Laboratory with Professor Ram Seshadri at the University of California, Santa Barbara where she studied metal-insulator transitions in vanadates. After a lectureship at the University of Kent, Serena joined the School of Chemistry at the University of Glasgow as a lecturer in Physical Chemistry in 2013, was promoted to Reader in 2016 and made Professor and Chair of Energy Materials in 2018. In October 2018, she joined the University of Sheffield as Professor and Chair in Functional Nanomaterials, as a joint appointment between the Departments of Chemical and Biological Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering. Her research focuses on the design, synthesis and characterization of functional nanomaterials in particular for applications in energy storage, with an emphasis on understanding their intimate structure-property interplay. She is associate editor of the RSC journals Nanoscale and Nanoscale Advances, IOP journal Progress in Energy and sits on the editorial boards of Chemistry of Materials and Nanoscale Horizons.

She was Theme Coordinator for Energy Conversion and Storage for the Scottish Energy Technology Partnership until 2018 and is a member of the Supergen Energy Storage Hub and Science board.  Serena also serves on the scientific and organising committees for a number of conferences (including the UK Energy Storage conference 2016; ISACS: Challenges in Inorganic Chemistry 2017;  16th European Solid State meeting 2017). Serena was appointed to the EPSRC Strategic Advisory Committee in 2017, a post she will hold for three years. She has published over 50 refereed publications, including five invited book chapters. She was awarded the 2017 Royal Society of Chemistry’s Journal of Materials Chemistry Lectureship. She is married to Eddie and they are parents to two boys.
