Description

Accidental Genius - the Science, Clumsiness and Luck of Discovery

Not all scientists are as careful as you might think and not all science is as well planned as you might hope! In this lecture, Professor Adam Hart tells the stories of discoveries made by accident, luck or just plain carelessness that have changed the world. With demonstrations by the Cheltenham Science Group, this lecture brings alive the science, accident and luck of discoveries from dynamite to Vaseline and penicillin to the microwave oven.

Refreshments will be available from 5pm and the lecture starts at 6pm.
