David Elder Lectures
Glasgow Science Centre is proud to host the David Elder Lectures in partnership with the University of Strathclyde's Department of Physics. The David Elder lecture series presents a line-up of fascinating talks by expert astronomers at the cutting edge of their fields of research. This lecture series continues the tradition of monthly astronomy lectures in Glasgow which began with the first David Elder Lecture in 1905, 112 years ago!
This regular monthly programme of talks runs over the winter months, from September to March each year. Each lecture costs only £6. These lectures have proved so popular that the speakers deliver the same lecture twice a night, at 6.30pm and 8pm – so why not book now? Each lecture lasts approx. 1 hour and is best suited to older teenagers and adults.
