We invite you to our 2019 Christmas Lectures where we bring a festive twist to teaching and learning in the Faculty of Natural & Mathematical Sciences, across the fields of Biomedical Engineering, Chemistry, Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics and our new department - General Engineering.

The Christmas Lectures give secondary school pupils from the ages of 15-18 an opportunity to explore a variety of Christmas themed topics in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) through lectures and demonstrations from university teaching staff. There will also be an opportunity to have a tour of our Strand Campus and meet current students and academics from the faculty. And we have some hot chocolate and ginger bread cookies for refreshments to keep everyone warm.

The talks will be:

  • How to win your Christmas family board game by Professor Igor Wigman
  • Father Christmas' naughty or nice detector by Dr Emma Robinson
  • Santa’s little helper: A robot that can travel inside your body by Dr Hongbin Liu
