Junk the Jargon Competition Final

Thursday 10 February 2011 from 3:30pm – 5:00pm
C16, Renold Building

Come along to this free event, which challenges our researchers to present their research topics to the general public.

In just 3 minutes our researchers need to make their topic clear, interesting and entertaining – strictly no jargon allowed!

You get to vote on the winner in this X-Factor style competition.

The inspiring, creative, and amusing talks include:
– How computers can find a cure for cancer
– Untangling the atmosphere – the hunt for turbulence
– Skedaddle! The Victorian love affair with American Slang
– Why you should cook your meat
– How I taught my Dad to use predictive text
– Business talking green: red herrings, rose-tinted spectacles and blue-skies thinking

Everyone is welcome. Bring your work-mates, bring your friends, bring your family!

Along with our judges from the BBC, Museum of Science & Industry and the Institute of Ideas you get to take part in the audience vote.
