Science and the City: The Mechanics Behind the Metropolis

Cities are a big deal. More people now live in them than don't, and with a growing world population, the urban jungle is only going to get busier in the coming decades. But how often do we stop to think about what makes our cities work?

LivWiSE is proud to welcome physicist and writer Laurie Winkless who will take us through a tour of the world of science and technology that keep a modern city working. Based on her book ‘Science and the City The Mechanics Behind the Metropolis’ Laurie will explore how innovation and imaginative engineering have built the world we see today.
