Curious: The RSE’s Summer Events Programme
Interested in discovering the science of gin, want to take part in the fight against fake news or simply enjoy a cup of tea in the RSE's elegant Scott Room?
This August leading experts from the world of science and the arts will converge on The Royal Society of Edinburgh’s glorious George Street building with a packed programme of free talks, discussions, exhibitions and performances.
Renowned Scottish crime writer Val McDermid will host a discussion on the developments of forensic science, while author, broadcaster and journalist Muriel Gray will sit down with portrait artist Iain Campbell and RSE Young Academy of Scotland member Debora Kayembe to discuss the ‘At Risk Academics: A Portrait’ exhibition.
Pop in to the Café Bar to refuel over a cup of tea, coffee or something stronger between shows, or settle in for a chat with experts of various fields during the ‘Tea and Just Talk’ sessions. If you have a burning question about forensic science or have always wondered how conversations from the flight deck have helped aviation safety, the experts will be on hand to answer any and all questions you may have.
Together with a daily Café Bar, live music and Afternoon Teas, the RSE are dishing up everything to feed a curious mind.
The RSE Summer Events Programme will run daily from 2nd to 26th August. More information can be found at rse.org.uk/curious.
