Helen Czerski – A world of science toys

At The George, September 4th @7:30 pm

The structure of our waking hours is shaped almost entirely by science and technology.   But  in many ways, we are more and more distant from the physical world around us.   How much is it worth understanding what your TV does and why an explosive molecule is also a blood pressure drug?  And how should we learn this stuff?

Helen Czerski is a physicist who thinks that our daily environment is a science toy box, and that playing with its treasures isn’t just a luxury.  These toys give us the scientific foundation needed for some of society’s biggest decisions.
