If we all take control of the technology and systems around us, and think creatively, then solving some of the world’s greatest challenges is only a small step away. I believe everyone has the potential to be an inventor!
– Prof Danielle George
Last Christmas, I’m a Scientist, Get me out of here teamed up with the Ri to give school students and the public the chance to ask questions inspired by the Life Fantastic. This year it’s I’m an Engineer’s turn.
The CHRISTMAS LECTURES and I’m an Engineer
The lectures will be aired on BBC FOUR over the festive period and will then be available to watch on BBC iPlayer and then on the Ri Channel from January 2015. From December through to the end of January 2015 students and the public will be able to log in to ask any questions inspired by the Sparks Will Fly theme. We’ll have a team of engineers, including Danielle George and her team from The University of Manchester online answering questions, and taking part in live chats with students and the public.
