2020 Discovery Series: Student Speaker Event

Our Discovery Series events, which run in late Term 1 and early Term 2, intend to give students an insight into a selection of current scientific issues and provide a taster of the full conference experience. We market ourselves as Europe’s first student-run science conference and as a logical next step, this year we thought;


“Why not take advantage of the wealth of talent in our student body and provide students with the opportunity to present at one of our events?”

We searched for motivated and passionate Student Speakers from departments across the the University of York's Faculty of Sciences to give an approx. 10 minute presentation and 5 minute Q&A session on a scientific topic of their choice to a virtual audience. 

We were lucky enough to have six students present their scientific topic of choice on the 17th November 2020. The schedule can be seen below. You can also find a recording of the event below. 

A massive thank you to our student speakers!
