The appliance of science

The British Science Week is also held between 13 and 22 March and the University of Portsmouth will once again be involved in organising science events for the city.

As much as I hate the cliche title, the festival is all about how we apply science to every day life.

On Monday 16 March, we welcome back the Ig Nobel team, who will give us research from around the world that will make you laugh and then make you think. It is fun and funny, so come along to the University of Portsmouth on 16 March, 6pm, at the Richmond Building.

One of Portsmouth scientists, Professor Mike Tipton, will look at how science is used in the court room, at a free lecture on 18 March in the Portland Building on Portland Street at 6pm.

Then join astronomers from the Institute of Cosmology and Gravitation in the Guildhall Square to view the partial solar eclipse on Friday 20 March, 8.30-10.00am. Ask questions and find out more about this amazing natural phenomena.

If you are worried about how much sugar is in your diet, come along to the Cafe Scientifique session on 24 February. It is slightly outside the Science Week bracket, but who's counting right? 

Professor Alison Lennox, expert in nutrition from the University of Surrey, will take us through the facts about sugar in our diet. Since the evening is about your questions, please come along and bring plenty for Alison to answer.

Take advantage of these free events and learn about the appliance of science!
