Question of Science Dinner 2018

Question of Science Dinner

Embracing Original Thinking

Thursday 11th October

This year at the annual Question of Science Dinner, we're welcoming something a little different. We welcome an incredible disruptive speaker along with a spectacular meal, a competitive quiz and huge amounts of entertainment for an evening not to be missed, in our wonderful building.

We're proud to welcome back Fred MacAulay to take care of MC proceedings like only he can.

Guest Speaker - Professor Sue Black

Our guest speaker this year is the pre-eminent forensic scientist, Sue Black.

Sue has shed light on some of the darkest aspects of human violence, using forensic science to help many hundreds of people to identify the remains of loved ones and bring closure to tragic events, as well as bringing numerous criminals to justice both at home and in some of the world's most dangerous conflict zones.

She will discuss her unprecedented personal experiences and her deep commitment to scientific rigour, which leads her to push the frontiers of forensic science to ensure that the cause of justice is supported by the best quality science. Her focus on robust evidence is disrupting current practice, too much of which is based on inconclusive methods.

Sue will discuss the importance of breaking out of academic silos and the need to fully embrace interdisciplinary approaches in order to avert miscarriages of justice and rebuild public trust in the scientific method.

The Quiz

You have three rounds (and some table teasers) to take the top spot through our interactive, competitive and highly enjoyable quiz. This year, we'll be focussing on forensics as we test your team's attention to detail to tie in with our fantastic speaker. Buttons at the ready!

Dinner

You'll enjoy an exquisite meal lovingly prepared by our in-house chefs; carefully crafted courses will complete your night.
