Ada Lovelace

Get the kids learning about chemistry in a fun and hands-on way, without messing up your kitchen!

Make rainbows with diffusion, investigate the properties of oil and water and find out what happens when a solid and liquid react together to form a gas. There’ll be colours, smells and balloons to help explore these chemistry concepts.

Dr Caroline Davies will be on hand to show you how to do some mind-blowing experiments.

These sessions are aimed at 5-11 year olds. It will last half an hour and all children need to be supervised by an adult (Adults come for free).

This Amazing Ada workshop is part of a series of talks we are putting on to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day (8th October) and women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).

Astronomy is a wide and varied subject. You can study distant bodies such as stars, planets and moons or look at how the universe began, evolves and will eventually end. History is punctuated with major astronomical discoveries and explorations.

This year sees the 50th anniversary of the moon landing and the first ever images of a black hole. This talk will introduce two exotic artifacts in the universe, extra-galactic jets from active galaxies and strong gravitational lenses. It will discuss radio astronomy and how through the use of multiple telescopes it has allowed us for the first time to take images of that which cannot be seen by usual means.

These iconic images of M87 link together all these different, complex and bizarre objects. This has allowed us to confirm our theories and improve our understanding of black holes; opening up possibilities for future discoveries.

Join us for this Amazing Ada talk by Bonny Barkus from The Open University.

Just one in a series of talks we are putting on to celebrate Ada Lovelace Day (8th October) and women in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).
