Bath Taps into Science: Family Talk by Saiful Islam
Wed 15 March 2017, 18:00 – 19:00 GMT
The Bath Taps into Science Family Talk will this year be given by Professor Saiful Islam who is delivering the Royal Institution Christmas Lectures. This is a great opportunity to meet him and ask him questions about his research into energy.
Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it just transforms from one form to another – the challenge is whether we can harness and use it for our own purposes when it changes from one form to another. The family talk will take us on an incredible journey through these powerful transformations to inspire the next-generation of scientists.
In the talk, Professor Saiful Islam will face a big question – what is energy and where does it come from, how can we best make use of it, and how can we store energy to use later on? Along the way we will learn about the energy that powers our homes, the energy that powers our cars and see how the most important machine of them all, the human body, compares to all the gadgets we carry around with us.
