Culture / Awareness
Sat Mar 23rd Wearside U3A members may be interested in

Saturday Morning Science at Durham University.

This lecture is Soft can be the toughest!
by Dr. Kislon Voitchovsky, Dr. Halim Kusumaatmaja & Dr. Margarita Staykova
Department of Physics and Centre for Materials Physics

at 10:15 for a 10:30 a.m. start
at The Calman Learning Centre.

A large part of the materials surrounding us are soft in the sense that they can be easily deformed or re-shaped: the air we breathe, the liquid we drink, our bodies, food, clothing and some of our modern technology. So what makes a material soft and what are the implications? Understanding the structure and properties of soft matter is key to many applications, ranging from medicine and biology to paints, car lubricants, electronic displays and the development of novel materials.

Saturday Morning Science at Durham University.

This lecture is How do plants feel?
by Prof. Marc Knight, Behaviour, Ecology & Evolution Research Centre
at 10:15 for a 10:30 a.m. start
at The Calman Learning Centre.

Plants in your garden, as well as those in the wild, simply can't move and have to take everything that the weather throws at them. As well as this, they also have to deal with being attacked by insects and microbes pretty much constantly. Not being able to run away or take medicines means that plants have to defend themselves in a particular way. This involves changes in the plants which will make them resistant to each type of attack. To do this plants need to be able to properly sense their environment, in the same way as you or I. Plants do indeed have "senses" which in some ways are similar to ours, and in other ways very different. This presentation will discuss what we know about how plants are able to see, sense touch, and taste, sense temperature, as well as to discuss the thorny topic of whether or not they can hear!
