How has our perception of the universe and our place in it shifted as scientists have created ways to image what has never been seen before?
From snapshots of the entire universe to microscopic molecules, our awesome speaker, Yolanda Ohene, is going to take us on a visual voyage. Using beautiful, iconic and outstanding images, she will explain the science behind them and ask:
'what really is the art of science that has made imaging the invisible possible and shaped our imagination?'
Flipping heck! We're excited for this one and to have Yolanda with us! Her research focuses on the development of new MRI techniques to better understand neurodegenerative disease such as Alzheimer’s Disease. Alongside her research, Yolanda is an avid science communicator being a BBC BAME Expert Voice, presenting at events, science festivals and schools. http://www.bbc.co.uk/academy/articles/art20150505131120292
As well as this awe inspiring, wonder more talk, we'll be doing our usual: mass singalongs to some of our favourite power ballads, an awesome spoken word artist, hearing a story from a member of our community and drinking a vat of tea afterwards!
We're excited to see you there!
