The BA Festival of Science

Mon 5th Sep 2005

The BA Festival of ScienceDublin this week plays host to a multi-venue science festival, with many events taking place in a variety of different venues. A sample of events are listed below, but there are many others, and it would be well worth checking out the full programme.

There's a talk from a dude at Trinity on 'Cells suicide, execution and downright murder: prolonging life by understanding death'. Blurb: Programmed cell death (apoptosis) enables us to grow, develop, heal wounds and keeps us free of disease. Professor Martin will, in a fun and colourful way, use everyday examples to highlight how cell death is inextricably intertwined with life.

The Irish writers' centre is having a talk on Monday afternoon on science in fiction - does sciencs fiction highlight the science issues of today or breed distrust in the scientific advancements that surround us. Someone please check this out - apparently there'll be SF writers and scientists debating.

Tuesday, there's a performance/talk on Flann O'Brien's book The Third Policeman and quantum and molecular theory in the Sugar Club.

Wednesday, a competition in which scientists and actors, in costume, attempt to explain complex physics to the audience in 3 mins.
