February 2023 Lecture – Professor Francis Keenan

For our annual ‘Andrew Trimble Memorial Lecture‘ we are really pleased to welcome back Professor Francis Keenan from QUB. Professor Keenan will be giving us a talk titled ‘The Science of Superheroes‘.

This talk will take place in our usual venue at Ballyclare High School Lecture theatre, on Monday 6th February, starting at 8pm sharp.

As many of you know, Francis loves his sci-fi from TV and Film and he expertly brings this together with science in what is always a high tech multimedia rich lecture. As you can tell from the title of this talk, we can expect more of the same!

Francis tells us that this will be a world premier of this talk and also comes with a parental guidance warning age rating of 15. 

Really looking forward to getting the lights turned down low and the speakers cranked up for this one!
