Hangouts

This year, we invited students across the UK to meet experts from the world of science in the comfort of their own classrooms via our Google Hangout programme for 2015.

Google Hangouts is an online platform for short conversations which can bring together participants and audiences from around the world.

Across our series of three Hangouts, we brought different aspects of science to life. Drawing on the experience of experts at GSK and our partner organisations, including Save the Children and the McLaren Technology Group, our Hangouts shared real-life stories of science in action directly with students.

These 15–20 minute chats provided exclusive insights into the amazing range of processes and people involved in the scientific world.

Our Hangouts were broadcast live between February and May 2015. However, there is still time to catch up on all the action! You and your students can still watch each of the Hangouts by simply following the links below.

Creative, imaginative people can make great scientists because they bring fresh new ways of looking at real-world challenges. But if you want to know if an idea will hold up in practice, you will need to come up with an experiment to test it.

Understand the journey of an idea - from investigation to scientific breakthrough.
Find out how creative partnerships have fuelled real-life innovation.
