Schoolroom science and other revolutionary ideas

How did you learn science at school? Do you think it would have differed very much from a lesson in 1911 or even earlier?

The University of Leeds holds an excellent collection of school science apparatus dating from the mid-19th century to the present day, all once part of the University's former history of education museum and now part of the collection at the University's Museum of the History of Science, Technology and Medicine. 

Using objects from this collection, Dr Emily Winterburn, curator of the museum, will talk about the clues that these objects can give us for understanding how scientists are made and how we have all come to be so  technically and scientifically literate.

Dr Winterburn will be talking:

On:  Saturday 1 October 2011

At:   3pm

In:   Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery

The talk is free: all welcome.
