Can you feel it? A science revival meeting

“Go forth and collide, Multiply and create” is the motto of our Science Assembly. Inspired by religious revival meetings, we will offer you songs, laughter, inspiration, and meaning. As a theme we will focus on the history, importance and meaning of science centres in society and your own individual role in this field. Standard elements of any holy assembly such as singing, reading, teaching and thinking in silence, will be interleaved with a motivational workshop. Our convenor will take on a pastor-like role, starting the session with an opening statement, and introducing the speakers as well as the songs the musician, chanters and congregation will sing.
