The Royal Photographic Society return to The Civic this winter with International Images for Science 2013.

Showcasing an extraordinary variety of scientific photography, this biennial exhibition explores worlds we can only imagine, or that are used as tools in everyday life in medicine, engineering and other related fields. These images will inform, question and inspire and are available to view at The Gallery@ The Civic from 20 December 2014 – 7 February 2015.

These incredible images range from far-away galaxies to subatomic particles, using specialist imaging techniques such as ultraviolet (UV) and infrared (IR), time lapse and high speed, electron microscopy, thermography, macro and photomicrography, phase contrast microscopy and schlieren photography.

20th DECEMBER 2014 – 7th FEBRUARY 2015
TUE – SAT 10am – 5pm (LAST ADMISSION 4:45pm)

For those of you with an interest in all things science, these two local groups may interest you….

SKEPTICS IN THE PUB is an informal social event designed to promote fellowship and social networking among skeptics, critical-thinkers, and other like-minded individuals.
The usual format of meetings includes an invited speaker who gives a talk on a specific topic, followed by a question-and-answer session. Other meet-ups are informal socials, with no fixed agenda. The groups usually meet once a month at a public venue, most often a local pub (currently the cellar bar of Old No7). There are now more than 100 different “SitP” groups running around the world.”

Barnsley SitP hold monthly meetings on the first Thursday of the month. We alternate between live speakers and social nights. The next scheduled speaker is Selina Wray, a Barnsley born neuroscientist working in the NIHR Dementia BRU at UCL Institute of Neurology, using stem cells to understand Alzheimer’s Disease & Frontotemporal Dementia. She was recently named Pioneering Researcher of the year at Red Magazine’s annual Woman of the Year Awards.
