BIG SCIENCE SATURDAY SEPTEMBER SPECIAL
A day of talks and discussions from an incredible array of scientists and experts. Can we stop humanity from getting fatter and fatter? Do the institutions we work for make us functionally stupid? Can you squeeze an understanding of all things into a 300 page book? (clue: yes). Which is the best way to walk, like a human, or a beetle, or a three toed sloth? Are we doomed from climate change? Find out the answers to these and much more at our Big Science Saturday September Special.

The Switch  Chris Goodall
Saturday will see an all-star line up of fascinating talks and tricky questions  in The Switch, Chris Goodall makes the claim that weaning ourselves off fossil fuels and onto a more sustainable future is not only essential, but inevitable. Will we all be driving solar-powered cars by 2025? Its time to make the switch.

The Stupidity Paradox  Andre Spicer
How can functional stupidity can bring short term success in the workplace, and yet becomes a recipe for disaster in the long run? Discover how organisations embrace the absurd, the dubious and the idiotic, and how to challenge the cult of stupidity around you.

Origins  Jim Baggott
The complete history of the universe, from the big bang to the beginnings of human consciousness. Prepare yourself for a whistlestop tour of the history of everything, with approximately one billion years covered every minute. For years, people have been telling stories about where we came from  this is an attempt to cover everything we know so far.

Restless Creatures  Matt Wilkinson
How do we (and other creatures) get from one place to another? Its easy not to think about how we get around, but without movement, life on earth probably wouldnt exist. From flying fish to ants on stilts, take a look at some of the sophisticated ways creatures get from A to B.

Fat Planet  David Lewis
Dr Lewis investigates the obesity crisis in Fat Planet  are people getting fatter, and if so, whats causing it? With factors ranging from stress and the environment to the actual components of our food supply, take a look at the psychological and social factors behind obesity.
