Scientists have developed interesting ways of presenting their data with some infographics conveying complex information in an arresting visual format – come and join us for this fast-paced tour of visual treats.

This will be quickfire science from six different speakers. Each speaker has chosen a single image that will illustrate their talk. Their challenge is to explain what their graph / photo / diagram shows and why it is scientifically important – and to do that inside 5 minutes.

The subjects covered will be:
CO2 levels
An astronomical mystery
An astronomical triumph
Muscle therapies
How the Earth has changed over time

You will have the chance to ask the speakers questions, and discuss which images were most effective in visualizing the data, displaying the research findings or telling the story.
