Learn about the science behind popular films

Posted on Updated on

SciScreen at the Tyneside Cinema is a new season of films which gives audiences the chance to learn about the science behind popular films

They are currently looking for more ideas from Newcastle University staff and students – for SciScreens over May-August ahead of the British Science Festival. In the SciScreenings, presenters give a short 15 minute introduction to a film, before taking Q&A from the audience following the screening.

If you would like to take part, please drop a note to Rose Wu by Friday 15 March, outlining your choice of film and how it relates to your work, the spin you would take in presenting it etc.

You can also see more here. Successful Proposals will also get a poster designed especially for their film choice by local design group Roots and Wings – to be displayed in the Tyneside Cinema!

Upcoming SciScreens:

March 19th 2013: Time Code, Dr Quoc Vuong and Dr Adrian Rees, Institute of Neuroscience

April 25th 2013: The Dish, Dr Andrew Fletcher, School of Mathematics & Statistics
