Explorathon - Pecha Kucha Night part 1

This is a past event

Hear from the brightest and best of Scotland's researchers at this fun and dynamic event.

Meaning Japanese for "chit chat" this 20x20 presentation format allows presenters to talk to 20 chosen images, each for 20 seconds. In other words, they've got 400 seconds to tell their story, with visuals guiding the way!

This creative outlet began as nighttime get-togethers in Tokyo in 2003 by two renowned architects. Since then, three million people have attended PechaKucha events worldwide.

Hear from a selection of Scotland's researchers on a range of topics, presentations taking place include:

Madeleine Heep, Edinburgh University - Jumping Genes:How Viruses Slip into our DNA

Maggie Ellis, St Andrews University - How can Dementia Change our Minds about Communication
