Secrets of Superhero Science at IFoT

With Wonder Woman being released in cinemas around the world this month, many of you might be dreaming of super-strength, bullet-proof bracelets or even the lasso of truth.

On Wednesday 7th June, the symposium ” Secrets of Superhero Science” will take place at TU Delft as part of the International Festival of Technology (IFoT). This symposium will focus on Superhero Science and the possibility of creating superpowers in the future including bulletproof materials that could replicate Wonder Woman’s bulletproof bracelets.

It’s been a real adventure putting the event together in conjunction with the great team involved in the organisation of the IFoT in Delft. I’ve got to say I’m very much looking forward to hosting the event, hearing what the speakers have to say about their work and how their work relates to creating superpowers and hearing from the audience during and after the event.

I promise a fun, entertaining and educational event and I hope to see you there.

NRC Weekend Covers the Secrets of Superhero Science

It’s just under 2 and half weeks from the Secrets of Superhero Science symposium at the International Festival of Technology, and I’ve got to say I’m pretty excited about it. The preparations are going well and I’ve spoken to all of the speakers over the last few weeks. I can’t wait to hear what they have to say and hopefully there’ll be a big crowd present on the day to hear about their amazing research and the link with superpower technologies.

In the lead up to the event I’m hoping that there’ll be some media coverage. Over the past weekend the first article about the conference was published in the NRC Weekend on the page “De Kleine Wetenschap”, a page of articles on science for younger readers. The article was written by Karel Berkhout. You can find the article below. However it’s in Dutch so my apologises to those without Dutch.

Secrets of Superhero Science at the International Festival of Technology at TU Delft

Since I published my book “Secrets of Superhero Science” back in February last year it’s been an exciting superhero-filled superpower-fuelled adventure. And the adventure continues to astound!

Next month as part of the International Festival of Technology I will be hosting the 1st ever symposium on Superhero Science. The symposium – Secrets of Superhero Science – will bring together speakers from various fields to discuss their work and the implications for possible superpowers in the future. There will genetics, 3D bioprinting, exoskeletons, bullet-proof materials, nano-vision and ethics. I’ve got to say I’m hugely excited about the event and can’t wait to host the incredible speakers I’ve got lined up for the symposium. A full list of the speakers can be found right here.

Stay tuned for more updates on the event over the coming days and weeks. It’s going to be super!
