Reading Science Week 2013


Reading Science Week 2013 is taking place from Friday 15 March to Saturday 23 March.

Reading Science Week will take place as part of National Science and Engineering week, with an interactive exhibition, investigating sustainable homes for the future, and stargazing being just some of the events on offer at the University.

The week will begin with ‘Stargazing: Exploring the universe from the comfort of Reading’ at the University of Reading’s Museum of English Rural Life from 6pm. This event will be fun for all the family, regardless of the weather, and will give you the chance to look through some really big telescopes and hear some learn more about the universe.

The University of Reading will host ‘The Great Debate: Homes for the future’ on Tuesday 19 March at 7pm in the Palmer Building on Whiteknights campus. This exciting debate will see Professor Stuart Green from the University’s department of Construction Management and Engineering chair a discussion on how we can create sustainable homes for the future. The University is an ideal host for such a debate, given major contributions by its academics such as Professor Martin Sexton and Dr Kate Hyde to research into sustainability in the built environment. The University will also host the ‘Imagining Science exhibition preview’ at the Central gallery in the Art Department from 10am to 5pm.
