Tim Harrison: A Pollutant's Tale

Tim Harrison: A Pollutant's Tale

Posted on behalf of Bath Taps into Science Festival

  • What do we really mean when we talk about climate change?

  • Can we explain it in relation to a granny in an armchair?

  • And what relevance does this have to the elephants toothpaste experiment or the saw tooth pattern?

Expect big bangs during this live performance as we delve deeper to challenge our understanding of the Earth's atmosphere, and the real science behind it.

Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

No, the talk is suitable for people of all ages although very young children may struggle as it will be a one hour talk.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

Parking is avaible at the University of Bath, which is free after 5pm, otherwise there are pay and display spaces avaible. For more details see the University of Bath parking webpages.

Buses run regualrly to the University of Bath from the centre of Bath. All the details of how to get to the University are on the University travel information webpages.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

Yes, you can update your information on the eventbrite page up until the event.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
