Explore some incredible scientific research from around the world that could lead to the superpowers of the superheroes in the future. This includes the science behind Iron Man, Spider-Man, the Invisible Woman and many other superheroes. In addition, we will also be talking about the ultimate superhero – Santa Claus. Every Christmas Santa travels around the world, a journey that is made possible thanks to his advanced science and technology. We also hope to inspire some of the audience to think differently about science, to think differently about superpowers and to possibly pursue a career in science and engineering in the future. Who knows, someone at the Midlands Science Festival could be the first person to build and wear a fully working Iron Man suit!
1st talk starts at 10.30. 2nd talk starts at 12.00.
