Monday 24 April 2017, 7:30 to 9:30 pm

Refreshments available from 7:15

This Church Scientific café evening will feature new talks by Leeds-based scientists sharing their exploration of Christian perspectives on their research. After each talk there will be time for discussion around tables over coffee, before we share questions and ideas with the speaker and each other.

Talks will be given by:

  • Heather McLaren, PhD student in engineering, University of Leeds
  • Paul Coleman, PhD student in history of technology, University of Leeds
  • Emily Messer, researcher in primatology at Heriot-Watt University, Edinburgh

Heather works on tribology: the study of friction and lubrication.  Paul is examining the development of the British National Grid: what motivated and shaped the infrastructure behind our electricity supply.  And Emily, this month’s visiting speaker, investigates how our behaviour as young children might be illuminated from the perspective of studying animals!

Join us for another fascinating tour of the world of scientific research in the light of Christian faith.
