This year's event will feature ‘The Climate System: Lessons from Geochemistry’ delivered by key-note speaker Professor Carrie Lear, Professor in Earth Science at Cardiff University, followed by an online panel discussion.

Our Daniell Lectures are delivered by internationally renowned scientists and cover a topic of current interest and excitement. Speakers are chosen not only for their outstanding contribution to modern scientific knowledge, but also for their ability to communicate the essence of their research to a young audience. This lecture is aimed at teachers and school students from the ages of 15 - 18 who are interested in studying Chemistry at university.

This year, the format will be slightly different!

We are delighted to welcome Professor Carrie Lear as our key note speaker, who will be delivering a pre-recorded online introduction to her and her work: “The Climate System: Lessons from Geochemistry”, which will explore how we can use chemistry to work out how our climate has changed in the past, from temperature, to carbon dioxide concentrations, to the size of ancient ice sheets, as well as what our future climate looks like.

We will then be hosting a live Q&A panel, on the 14 October 2020, with special guests:

  • Professor Carrie Lear, Cardiff University
  • Professor Richard Herrington, Natural History Museum
  • Ms Zakiya Mckenzie, Black and Green Ambassador/Nature
  • Ms Alexandra (Ali) Hepple, Sustainability Officer, King's College London

You can submit questions ahead of time, to any member of the panel, and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions live on the day as well. To submit questions for the panel, please visit our padlet page.
