Event description

Description

How significant are these everyday risks? What does it mean when something is statistically significant? And do we all perceive risks the same way? Real life involves risks, whether it's cycling without a helmet, travelling to a country with contagious diseases, or living in a house next to a river. Jen Rogers delves into the numbers to show you how statistics can help you to make better decisions about risky activities. Sometimes the way we think about risk is distorted, making you think some things are more - or less - risky than is actually the case.

This event is particularly suitable for ages 13+

Discounted tickets are available to Members and Patrons of the Ri. Find out more about how to join our community.

The doors will open at approximately 5.30pm, with a prompt start at 6.00pm. There will be time for questions after the talk.

Latecomers may be admitted to the gallery.
