A summary

This is a Zoom call with a difference! I have found out that the technology inside our computers is similar to our own software - except ours is softer of course. We have three colour receptors; so does the computer. We have difficulty listening to several voices at once; so does Zoom. Zoom can't handle bright lights or loud noises; neither can we. So this is a nice, chatty way to dissect our own senses using Zoom as a proxy. !¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡!¡ ***** Obviously, we'll be using Zoom as our classroom.***** After you book your ticket and before the day, I will send you a Zoom link, with all you need to know. The ticket price is per child. An adult is expected to accompany them - indeed they will learn as much as the young ons, including some handy household hints

Richard Robinson·Director of the Brighton Science Festival
Science is amazing, but sometimes the language of science is frustrating, often acting more as a barrier to understanding than as a help. My mission is to share the excitement, and simplify the language so we can all take part in it. My childhood was spent surrounded by my dad and brothers, who were all engineers. Naturally, I wanted to be an artiste when I grew up! I managed to do both, by making puppets, including mechanisms, then performing them on a children's TV show about science (The Riddlers: elf-like folks who try to 'riddle out' how the world works). There I practised speaking simple science, and found it was just as easy to be rigorous and accurate with clear English as with science-speak. I set up the Brighton Science Festival in 2005, because there is a great need to get kids engaged with science. It has been a great romp for me since then, to make things and learn things, and to pass on my learning to others, which makes my life richer, more useful, and heaps more fun. I've written 20 books about science, mostly for 7-11 year-olds. Over the past 15 years I have continued to encourage scientific thinking via the Brighton Science Festival, and the Pocket Science Funfair. There's plenty to be done: we need to understand a lot of things, from the huge (think climate change...) to the tiny (...and viruses). Let's keep on trying.

Learning aims

They'll have an insight into the fabulous, subtle complexities of the human brain. I hope we won't be delivering a fabulously complex talk.
