We’ve now confirmed the sixth and seventh speakers for Festival Day 2019 and those attending will be treated to talks from Dr Heather Williams, Principal Medical Physicist for Nuclear Medicine at The Christie Hospital and honorary Lecturer at the University of Manchester, and Claire Garside, teacher, creative technologist and a postgraduate researcher at The University of Leeds.
Heather’s talk is entitled, Your anti-twin could be your best friend, and will introduce the principles underpinning Nuclear Medicine and Positron Emission Tomography (PET) in particular, which uses anti-matter emitters to map the internal workings of the body. We can’t wait to learn more!
With a talk entitled, Sense and Sense Air-bility: Building a Community Network of Air Quality Sensors [featuring quality punnage that we highly approve of!] Claire will talk about how adults and children are engaging with the The Internet of Curious Things programme to bring about healthy changes in their own neighbourhoods. An excellent initiative, we are sure you will agree.
A small number of Early Bird tickets have gone on sale and if you do happen to miss out on these, the remaining tickets will be on sale once the schedule is finalised around the end of May.
