DINNER WITH DR DANCE – Peter Lovatt Saturday 23 June 7:30 - 10:30pm
The Inaugural Science Festival Dinner Dance is kicking off this year’s festivities. A two-course meal with the promise of some fantastic entertainment. Sixth Form students will be providing ‘science busking’ and they will also give you the chance to test your science knowledge in the form of a quiz. The KES bar will be open for refreshments if you wish to hydrate before some dancing with Dr Dance. All profits from the evening will be going to Planet Caner charity funds research into novel treatments for pancreatic, liver and other cancers.
Monday 25th to Wednesday 27th June sees the second Science and Technology festival at King Edward VI School in Southampton. The pupils will once again be treated to talks and workshops covering all aspects of science from brains to the big bang. Speakers will describe and demonstrate the excitement of research and recent developments in science, supporting and extending the work pupils cover in their lessons.
The School is hosting a series of evening lectures for parents and pupils in the new, state-of-the-art Dobson Theatre. This year the free talks are open to the general public. Monday evening’s double bill begins with ‘Mind and brain in the 21st century’ followed by ‘Expedition Science’ in which, amongst other treats, younger members of the audience get to try eating insects!
