Welcome to our public science lecture series!

This series of talks is open to all and free to attend. Lectures are held once a month, on the third Thursday of each month. We welcome speakers in all areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) from across the University of Nottingham, and we hope you can join us to hear about some of the fascinating research that is being undertaken at the university.  

Colleagues from across the university’s science community have been jointly hosting a series of public science lectures for over 10 years following on from the successful lectures organised for the International Year of Astronomy (2009), Int. Year of Chemistry (2011), and the series organised by the East Midlands British Science Association. 

The series is currently organised by colleagues within the Institute of Policy and Engagement and Dr. Hilary Collins (School of Pharmacy).

If you would like any more information about the series or would like to be added to the mailing list, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

Self-perceptions of ageing

In this online talk Dr Sabatini will introduce the concept of self-perceptions of ageing and provide an overview of literature linking self-perceptions of ageing with health-enhancing behaviours and indicators of mental, physical, and cognitive health.

Soot: the past, present, and future of a man-made nanoparticle

In this public lecture, Michael Fay will look at how soot affected us in the past, how it affects us today, and how we can gain a better understanding of it.

Apollo legacy: how engineers landed people on the moon

This interactive lecture uses archive footage of the Apollo 11 spacecraft landing on the Moon in July 1969 and how engineers (from many backgrounds) made this happen. There will also be UK built rocket engines from the 50's and 60's as well as some examples of how you can get involved in Space Engineering at home. Free and open to all to attend.
