The annual Association for Science Education (ASE) conference will be coming to campus for the second time in the new year.
More than 2,000 delegates, from teachers to laboratory technicians and school inspectors are expected to gather from Wednesday 4 January until Saturday 7 January 2012.
Academics from the University will be presenting a number of lectures on the Frontier Science Lecture Programme covering a range of subjects including obesity and HIV research.
Five-time Olympic Gold medallist, Sir Steve Redgrave, will be at the event on Friday 6 January, showcasing the Wellcome Trust’s Olympics-inspired free experiment kits for schools, designed to explore the science of how the body works during exercise. He will be joined by BBC Science presenter Greg Foot and Professor Hugh Montgomery, who has worked extensively in the science of fitness.
The ASE was last at the University in 2008 to celebrate the European Capital of Culture year in the city.
Annette Smith, ASE’s Chief Executive, said: “I graduated from this University and it is always a real pleasure for me to be back in the city, and the University has always given us a very warm reception.”
The conference will have talks, lectures and workshops bringing science to life and the latest developments in the field.
To accommodate the marquee for the ASE, the car park in Peach Street will be closed until 8.30am on Monday 9 January 2012.
