Johnny's talk this year features basic scientific ideas that can empower your students and make them believe they need never be daunted by the Science ahead of them.

He will show how a solo round the world yachtsman - or woman - finds the best route to arrive anywhere on the surface of the Earth, or indeed how your school can measure the size of the Earth accurately. He will feature simple tricks that can fool your friends into thinking you have a powerful mathematical brain - and the amazingly simple Maths that clearly explains Science, via Dalton, Faraday and Marie Curie - who together made basic Science so immensely powerful.

He will give a deeper exploration of Galileo’s simple science, what the Inverse Square Law means in simple terms and how understanding Kepler’s Planetary Motion and Newton’s Universal Gravitation is child’s play. This is a talk no Science Teacher should miss.

Johnny Ball will be doing a book-signing at the ASE Hub in the Exhibition Marquee after his talk.
