Sir Isaac Newton Lecture inspires secondary students across Lincolnshire

On Tuesday 9 October secondary school students from across Lincolnshire visited RAF Cranwell for the Sir Isaac Newton Lecture.

The annual event is jointly hosted by the Institution of Engineering and Technology, the Royal Aeronautical Society and the Institution of Mechanical Engineers in partnership with The EBP.

This year’s speaker Jim Al-Khalili OBE, is a British scientist, author and broadcaster. Currently a professor of Physics at the University of Surrey, he is also President of the British Science Association.

387 young people attended the event at Whittle Hall, RAF Cranwell to give them an insight into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The theme for this year’s lecture was ‘What’s Next – How Science is Shaping Our Future’. Jim Al-Khalili discussed topics across STEM, engaging and inspiring the students to think about these subjects and how a career in any of the fields could be for them.

Each year schools are invited to the event to both inspire and broaden the awareness of the many varied and exciting careers that are available.
