My Path Through Research

The Trials and Triumphs of Doing a PhD

Scheduling my Cheltenham Experience

The Cheltenham Science Festival is getting closer and closer, and my excitement level is getting higher and higher. Thanks to the UCL bursary I have the opportunity to attend quite a good number and range of events (though some events I really wanted to attend did overlap, so difficult choices had to be made too).

Well, are any of you attending the festival? If so, this is the event schedule I will be following: quite hectic but still highly enticing.

Day Event Time
Thursday The Ultimate Piano Lesson (extra event) 5:00 pm (60mins)
Heston Blumenthal in Conversation with Harold McGee 6:30 pm (75mins)
Fakes and Discoveries: The Madonna of the Pinks 9:00 pm (60mins)
Friday Robert Winston: Bad Ideas? 2:00 pm (60mins)
Bill Bryson: 350 Years of the Royal Society 4:30 pm (75mins)
Performance Under Pressure: Stressed Out? 6:30 pm (60mins)
A Question of Science 9:00 pm (90mins)
Saturday The Bigger Bang 10:00 am (60mins)
Chemistry: A Volatile History 2:00 pm (60mins)
Is this the Golden Age of Science Writing? 4:00 pm (60mins)
Coast: Alice Roberts and friends 6:30 pm (60mins)
FameLab International 8:30 pm (120mins)
The School for Gifted Children 9:30 pm (90mins)
Sunday Science vs Magic 10:00 am (60mins)
Stopping the Spread of Superbugs 2:00 pm (60mins)
The Wavewatcher’s Companion 4:00 pm (60mins)
Call My Scientific Bluff 6:15 pm (60mins)
Stand Up Mathematics 8:00 pm (60mins)

It would be great to meet up with you there, or to hear your thoughts about the events and the Science Festival in general. So if you’re going to be there, drop me a comment here, ping me on twitter, or smoke signals would otherwise have to suffice.

There are a few more things in the pipeline for me to get more involved during the festival. But more about that later!
