Burlington House Lunchtime Scientist: school students in conversation with leading scientists


Join us today for a Livestream at 1pm on YouTube here: https://youtu.be/HuRmf3V71pk


In 2020 the Royal Astronomical Society is 200 years old. For our bicentennial celebrations we’re collaborating with our neighbours at Burlington House including the Linnean Society, Geological Society, Royal Society of Chemistry and the Society of Antiquaries of London and inviting GCSE students to have conversations with scientists.

BH Lunchtime Scientist will launch on 13 May with a conversation with astrobiologist Professor Jane Greaves of University of Cardiff who will share her research on life elsewhere in the universe.

This online event will be an exclusive 30-minute Zoom meeting with GCSE students and teachers and a simultaneous livestream on YouTube. Jane will talk about her life in research and the prospects for finding extra-terrestrial life in our solar system and on planets around other stars.
