Researchers open doors for science event

Science Grrl Event
18 January 2016

A Stirling science event will lift the lid on the world of research and give a glimpse into some of the ground-breaking studies taking place at the University of Stirling.

Members of the public are encouraged to attend the University’s Science Cabaret event and enjoy a host of presentations on novel research in areas including biology, computing, health sciences, mathematics, and psychology.

From using maths to improve the nation’s health and evolving a better way to catch criminals to how Mary Poppins can solve the problems of tomorrow, visitors will be able to attend talks on a wealth of interesting facts and innovative ideas.

Professor Rachel Norman, organiser of the event, said: "The Science Cabaret is a fun, free event geared at giving people the chance to find out what goes on day-to-day at the University and explore some of the wonderful, thought-provoking facts researchers have uncovered in recent years.

“We hope to welcome members of the community along to visit the campus, learn something new and enjoy some refreshments, and perhaps inspire some future researchers who can contribute to the diverse research community here at Stirling.”

The event is supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council’s POEMS network for predictive modelling for healthcare, which aims to grow and connect the research community in the UK and is organised by the Stirling chapter of Science Grrl – an organisation which celebrates and supports women in science.

The Science Cabaret will take place at 7pm on Tuesday 2 February in the Macrobert Arts Centre at the University of Stirling. The event is free and suitable for over 12s. Tickets are available from the Macrobert Arts Centre.
