Explore the invaluable and sometimes surprising links between craft and science through the experiences of people who have built their careers between the two. Join Zoe Laughlin and award-winning engineers, scientists and educators to find out more. Sponsored by Smith of Derby and The Watch Club.

The line-up includes:
• Dr Rebecca Struthers – a real-life ‘time doctor’, independent watchmaker, author, historian and sustainable skills ambassador for the Association of Heritage Engineers.
• Roma Agrawal MBE – speaker, presenter and structural engineer who has worked on projects from sculptures and footbridges to The Shard (author of Built: The Hidden Stories Behind our Structures and children’s book How Was That Built?).
• Dr Maria Maclennan – lecturer and researcher at Edinburgh College of Art, service design manager at Police Scotland, and the world’s first ‘forensic jeweller’, exploring how jewellery can be used to assist identification and help solve crimes.
• Alom Shaha – science teacher, filmmaker and writer who has worked with organisations including BBC Bitesize and The Royal Institution to improve childhood learning through making (author of several books including Mr Shaha’s Marvellous Machines).

After the main session, scientific glassblower Terri Adams of the University of Oxford is on hand to talk through her endangered and sometimes life-saving craft. There are networking and opportunities to meet the panellists before and after the event. Authors Roma Agrawal and Alom Shaha are available to sign copies of their books after the session. Suitable for all ages, including livestreaming with real-time question and answer session for those unable to attend in person.
