The Royal Society of New Zealand runs a variety of events and forums for public audiences on a wide range of topics related to science, technology and the humanities. Writers and consumers of speculative fiction may be interested in these lectures – perhaps as inspiration for building their next new world.
Some upcoming lectures include:
- Dr Valerie Soo discussing ‘Possible origins of antibiotic resistance: a biochemistry
- UK science writer Alok Jha discussing “Water the extraordinary story of our most ordinary substance.’
- Tim Naish and James Renwick discussing “Ten by Ten: ten things you didn’t know about climate change.’
Moe information is available on the Royal Society events page, including details of upcoming contests.
