The Element In The Room
Join two thirds of the nerds – that’s Helen Arney and Steve Mould – as they take you on a whistlestop tour of the their new book, The Element in the Room.
Why is it impossible to spin your right foot clockwise while you draw a 6 with your right hand? Can you extract DNA from a strawberry daiquiri? Would you make love like a praying mantis? Should you book a holiday on Earth 2.0?
If you are sci-curious, π-curious or just the-end-is-nigh-curious, join Helen and Steve at one of these events for a rib-tickling, experiment-fuelled adventure that explains everyday science that is staring you in the face.
