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.

This session is for families, with content aimed predominantly at KS2  i.e. 7 – 11 year olds. Please note that the 2 pm session will be a repeat of the 1 pm session, so please book and attend just one of the time slots. Registration will open on 12th February.

Team members and session leaders present across these days will include, but not be limited to:
