Possibly the second most famous British Winston, Professor Robert, is coming to the Brindley Theatre, Runcorn on Monday 6 November with his new lecture Improve Your Learning.
The Labour life peer is one of the most instantly recognisable scientists in the country and is a compelling speaker, bringing complex issues to life with infectious enthusiasm and energy.
He has been responsible for making science understandable to generations, from Your Life in Their Hands on BBC Television from 1979 – 1987 and The Human Body in 1998 to more recent programmes on the human mind.
We all can improve how we learn. We learn fastest when young, but we can continue effective learning into old age. If we keep learning we are likely to be healthier, happier and have a useful, longer life.
This exciting, illustrated talk shows how recent research highlights not only how valuable learning is, but also what we all can do to improve our learning in and out of school, and reap the rewards long afterwards.
Professor Robert Winston is one of our leading specialists on fertility and IVF and popularised the subject with television series such as Making Babies, The Human Body, The Secret Life of Twins and Superhuman.
Most recently he presented six programme for BBC’s Child against All Odds. His most recent book on science is The Utterly Amazing Human Body, a pop-up book that teaches children how the body works
He will take a Q&A session at the end of his talk.
Tickets are £17.50, £16.50, £15 Groups 10 plus from www.thebrindley.org.uk and the Brindley box office on 0151 907 8360.
