Venue: Birkbeck Clore Management Centre

For FOUR nights in May/June, Birkbeck’s School of Science will host engaging and interactive evening events showcasing our three Science Departments - Biological Sciences, Earth & Planetary Sciences, and Psychological Sciences - and culminating in the return of the annual Rosalind Franklin lecture.

These events are for anyone who has received an offer to study in the School of Science, has a passing interest in science and/or is considering studying science at university.

You can attend our programme of free science talks in person – right in the heart of central London – or join our global online audience as we live stream the event. 

The Psychological Sciences event will start with a series of short talks by researchers in the department, with a focus on the topic of educational neuroscience, an emerging scientific field which is the focus of the Centre for Educational Neuroscience. These talks will be followed by a Q&A and panel discussion on the progress made in this field and how research in cognitive neuroscience, psychology and genetics can help promote better learning. In the final part of the event, you will have a chance to explore the wider research carried out in our department, from the studies of development in babies to computational models of brain function, by talking to our PhD students during a poster session.
