STEM Christmas Lectures 2022

“I could use a little social interaction” – The Grinch

If you’re feeling a little bit like The Grinch, why not join us the week beginning Monday 12 December, for our annual STEM Christmas Lecture Series?  

This series aims to inspire the next generation of scientists and will showcase our expertise in key STEM subjects.

We will be offering both virtual and in-person lectures across the week streamed via our YouTube channel and on our beautiful Brayford Campus, giving everyone the opportunity to experience a taste of teaching at Lincoln.

So, if you have any interest in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Engineering, or Computer Science, then why not come along?
