Next Science Café: Thurs 15th March

We’re excited to announce our first Science Café of 2012 which takes place on Thursday March 15th at 7.30pm at Otley Courthouse, Courthouse Street, Otley. Don’t miss the opportunity to fire questions at top scientists from around the region as they set out to encapsulate a key idea in just 10-15 mins and 20 slides.

We have 3 fabulous speakers lined up who will be talking about:

  • “Air pollution & how scientists used lichens to monitor the impact of the Chernobyl disaster” with Mark Seaward, Honorary Research Professor at Bradford University & Honorary Professor at Lincoln University
  • “How genetics are changing the ways we can treat cancer” with Otley based geneticist Paul Roberts, Consultant Clinical Scientist at the Yorkshire Cytogenetics Unit at St James Hospital Leeds
  • Life Online & the History of the Internet” with Tom Woolley, Curator of New Media at the National Media Museum

Marty Jopson of BBC TV’s the One Show who helps organise the Café said:

‘We’ve got a great line up and it’s always a really fun and inspiring evening. Everyone’s welcome, whether you’re a beginner, an expert or still at school. Science Cafe audience members are aged from 9-90!’

Tickets: £4/£3 concessions, available in person from Otley Courthouse in advance or on the door, by phone from the Courthouse Box Office- 01943 467466, or online from the Courthouse website at
