Science on a Summer's Evening
Thursday, 13 June 2013 from 17:00 to 20:15 (BST)
Edinburgh, United Kingdom
Please join us for Science on a Summer's Evening.
The College of Science and Engineering at the University of Edinburgh presents a programme of science for a summer’s evening, chaired by BBC Science Correspondent, Ken MacDonald.
Charles Darwin and James Clerk Maxwell are former students of the University of Edinburgh. We celebrate these great historical scientists in our Science on a Summer's Evening event, by showcasing their research legacy in the College today.
In 2013 we are spanning the aeons, as Charles Cockell, Professor of Astrobiology, will speak about the search for a second evolutionary experiment in the Darwin Lecture. This year's Maxwell lecture will be given jointly by Dr Neil Robertson, Director of the Scottish Institute for Solar Energy Research and Professor Gareth Harrison, Deputy Head of the Institute for Energy Systems. Neil and Gareth will examine the future potential of solar energy in Scotland and beyond.
