  • Catastrophic Failure with Steve Maggs (Warwick Manufacturing Group) Tue 1 Dec 7pm. An exploration of science behind materials and their mechanical properties: why do different materials behave in different ways (providing an opportunity to smash a few things up on stage).
  • The Bruker Warwick Christmas Lecture: Biggest Bangs with Andrew Levan (Physics) Wed 2 Dec 7pm. Across our Universe, five stars explode every second. Join us to find out how they blow-up, how we see them, and why we are only alive because of them.
  • Give Me Strength with Nick Barker (Chemistry) Mon 7 Dec 1.15pm In this lecture Nick Barker of the Chemistry Department will present the science behind some of the energy sources we take for granted in our everyday lives. It will contain practical demonstrations and a number of bad jokes.
  • Life Off Earth with Kevin Moffat & Leanne Williams (Life Sciences) Tue 8 Dec 7pm Find out where we might find food and water as we journey through space. How we might protect ourselves and find oxygen. And answer the question, is there life out there?
  • What Makes a Robot…a Robot? with Claire Rocks (Computer Science) and Adrian Letchford (Warwick Business School) Wed 9 Dec 7pm Find out why robots are good at some things and bad at others, and how can we harness some of nature’s solutions to make even better robots.
