Tickets are free but must be booked in advance
**Please note that this event is aimed at pupils in years 9 & 10 (aged 13 to 15). Schools are kindly asked to have only one staff member register the whole group**
In this talk we explore what happens when science doesn't play by the rules and decides to attack! We will look at the science behind some of the more amazing headlines in the news and use demonstrations to show the science behind these topics and the human impact of them
