The story of how humans have reshaped the world over the last 10,000 years is the story of science & engineering. This giant narrative takes in 14 of the most significant discoveries covering the complete scientific spectrum from maths (abstract) to astronomy (infinity). The talk, accompanied by a coat of many pockets and a giant edition of the Wallbook of Science & Engineering, also gets students to think about the unintended consequences of scientific endeavour. Have they changed the word for the better – or worse – it will be up to the audience to decide! Ideal for cross-curricular integration, science, maths and history departments.

Maths – Zero, mechanical calculators, Physics: E=MC2, Nuclear Age, Biology: Dangers of smoking, Edward Jenner and the story of vaccinations; Earth Sciences – Plate tectonics, Natural Selection, Inventions – Light Bulb, Steam Power, Transport and Communications – Birth of writing, Steam trains, Flight & Space – Wright brothers, Edwin Hubble.
