BCSC Halloween Science Fact and Science Fiction 28th Oct 7pm Zoom

Think you can tell your science fact from your science fiction? Join the BCSC and some fiendish friends for our second annual Halloween online event. This time around, we’ll be looking at the Black Country’s links with science fiction and exploring some of the weird and wonderful aspects of the region’s science facts. Expect monsters, mummies, mutants and menacing machines as we’re joined by University of Wolverhampton’s Dr Nicola Allen and Dr Martin Khechara, alongside BCLM researchers Dr Jenny Gilbert and Nadia Awal.

From the virtual fireside, Nicola will set the science fiction scene and introduce the genre: its origins, development and characteristics. Jenny and Nadia will share some of their favourite Black Country sci-fi stories and Dr K will be exploring the science behind monsters, mutants and terrible triffids.

We’ll also be hosting an interactive quiz that will test your skills in telling scientific fact from fiction. Book now for a free, fun and informative night of spooky science!
