Additionally, Dr. Emily Grossman will deliver a plenary:

Lies, Damned Lies and Newspapers
Can we believe everything we read in the papers? Sometimes mis-takes arise in the media because of genuine errors. Sometimes data from scientists is misinterpreted or misunderstood. And sometimes the media knowingly spin or distort statistics to tell a good story. Who knew?! In this interactive and amusing talk, Dr. Emily Grossman takes a light-hearted look at these issues – illustrated with examples of “embarrassing moments” where she’s been caught out in her own career as a TV science broadcaster.

Eligibility

Maximum 20 student places per school.
