Big questions: how do we know what we know?

Wednesday 18 October 2017

A hands-on day exploring "Big Questions" in Science and Religion.
An exciting opportunity for young people to discover, discuss and debate the compatibility of science and faith. The day aims to equip attendees with the all-important tools they need in order to form their own opinions and engage in rational, exciting, well-reasoned and thought-provoking discussion about how to use data and obtain knowledge using science and religion as an example in differences of interpretation.
Our science magician will start the afternoon with a mind-bending look at the way we use our senses to gather data, how we form perceptions and interpretations, the ways that we can be tricked, and whether we can be certain about anything. Then join our other scientists for some hands-on interactive sessions taking a look at exciting topics from dinosaurs to DNA.
We’ll wrap up the day with a chance for young people to ask the scientists some big questions about science and religion, either provoked by the day or prepared in advance.
