Citizen Science: How to Engage with Millions of People
Start time 6:30pm – note this is earlier than usual
Roger will discuss his fascinating experiences in engaging the public. Over several years, he has conducted various mass experiments in collaboration with the BBC from Megalab and Live Lab, to online cognitive tests on 44,600 people.
Roger Highfield is the Science Director at the Science Museum Group, a member of the UKRI-Medical Research Council, Visiting Professor at the Dunn School, University of Oxford and at the Department of Chemistry, UCL, and a Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences. He was the Science Editor of the Daily Telegraph for two decades, and the editor of New Scientist between 2008 and 2011. He has written or co-authored eight popular science books, including the critically-acclaimed The Arrow of Time, The Physics of Christmas and The Dance of Life (with Magda Zernicka-Goetz). He studied chemistry at the University of Oxford and was the first person to bounce a neutron off a soap bubble.
