- Lecturers: Dr Mark Lewney
***This event has been cancelled. If you have not been issued a refund yet, please contact Katherine McAlpine on firstname.lastname@example.org***
Led by science presenter and rock guitarist Dr Mark Lewney, this mind-expanding and ear-stimulating lecture will reveal how rock guitars make their distinctive sounds, how string vibrations might answer questions about the Big Bang and how the the LHC - the biggest experiment ever built - may let us peek into extra dimensions. With hands-on demonstrations, mind-bending animations and expert guitar playing, this lecture will get the audience thinking in multiple dimensions. It will also share the wonder and excitement of how innovative experiments using the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in CERN will let us glimpse what the universe was like in its first hundred-trillionth of a second and may even help us discover the origins and nature of matter.
Tickets are £1.50 per person. We charge a small fee for schools events to help discourage non-attendance and provide income to invest back into our schools programme. Why not make the most of your visit and look around our museum at the same time?
