471: School science talk by Lucy Hawking

Lucy Hawking PLecture_9912ITEM: Lucy is offering to give her very popular schools’ talk where she takes the audience on a journey across the universe, asking all the big questions like what would it be like to be the first person on an empty planet? What would happen if we fell inside a black hole? And what we would say to an alien if and when we meet one? Ideal for primary schools full of curious minds.

(The school would need to be within a couple of hours of London.)

BIO: Author Lucy Hawking is the creator of the ‘George’ series of adventure novels which aim to make astrophysics, astronomy and cosmology entertaining and accessible to young readers. Working with a wide variety of scientists, including her physicist father, Stephen Hawking, Lucy has used story telling to introduce science to a primary age readership across the world.
