Does science disprove God?
Can the Bible be true if it doesn’t mention dinosaurs?
Could robots or aliens be religious?
What really makes me ‘me’?
Asking big questions like these, and many others, is an exciting part of being human. Science is one really great way to explore the world around us as we consider these big questions. But do we ever need more than science? And can our incredible scientific discoveries fit with belief in God? If you’re curious about the world around you, and have questions about whether science and religious faith can ever fit together, then join the Youth and Schools team from The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion, Cambridge, for an interactive, hands-on science session, digging deeper into this fascinating topic.
Steph coordinates the three main strands of the Youth and Schools Programme at The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion. These strands are: workshops for children and young people; training for teachers and educators; and book and resource production.
Steph holds a degree in natural sciences from Cambridge University, specialising in evolutionary biology, ecology and conservation science. She has been involved in various conservation and communication projects since graduating, from studying wolves in Bulgaria to frogs and salmon in Canada, and working with local communities and landowners to reduce conflict between humans and wildlife.
One of Steph’s favourite things is to create spaces where anyone can ask and explore their big questions about life, the universe and everything. She loves travelling around the UK to explore exciting questions with curious young people of all faiths, worldviews and ages – preferably with some fossils, mysteries and chocolate ‘wolf poo’ in her bag!
Growing up in South Africa, Cara fell in love with the ocean and all of the world’s wild places and animals. As a Christian, she loves exploring the world she believes God made, and sharing her experiences with others to help start conversations about God, science and their interactions.
Cara studied marine biology and oceanography at the University of Cape Town. She has been lucky enough to travel to different countries, learning about the environment and how she can help protect animals and wild areas. Cara has worked with owls, turtles, seabirds and coral reefs. Now she loves talking to young people about how we can help our planet.
