Festival of Ideas: boffins have 6 minutes to share their work

Tomorrow sees a Festival of Ideas hitting Lancaster that aims to give an opportunity to the public to learn about the research of PhD students and University Staff.
There will be Poster Presentations in Market Square from 10am - 4pm as Doctoral students discuss their research with passers-by.

Then the Festival moves to the Storey for 6 minute presentation sessions from 4pm - 6pm (PhD students) & 7pm - 9pm (lecturers).
See the full programme of presentations.

They have 20 slides and 20 seconds to talk to each of these, giving each presentation 6 minutes and 40 seconds in total. The festival aims to give an opportunity to the public to learn about the research of PhD students and University Staff. And maybe get an idea what a Dragon feels like.
Drop in for what will surely be a thought-provoking and curiosity-filled day.
A wine reception will accompany this event at which there will be a chance for informal socialising and to carry on the discussion. Everything is free and all are welcome.
