Peter Naish - Speaker (free)

I am probably best known for giving talks on the mechanisms and applications of hypnosis. However, I have also given presentations dealing with how the brain processes information from the senses, on the impact of trauma and the mysterious nature of consciousness. All my talks involve demonstrations and audience participation. I have spoken at all the main science festivals (e.g. Edinburgh, Cardiff, British Science Festival) in many cases on numerous occasions.

Dinosaurs are a fascination and an inspiration for children. Our hands-on, interactive workshops feature genuine and replica fossils from our museum in Hull. The artefacts include teeth, claws, even a genuine dinosaur egg! Highlight of the presentation is a full size replica Allosaur skull (sharp, scary teeth!) Children are told the exciting stories of the fossils then have the chance to touch and handle the artefacts.

THE FX FACTOR: Flames, smoke and pyro are used on TV, in films and on stage to add explosive atmosphere, but how do scientists go about making these effects? Join Matthew Tosh to find out and explore the amazing world of live special effects. Learn how to make a controlled column of fire or ankle hugging fogs without choking the audience and much more. Packed with demos, freezing jets, bubbling flasks, smoke and one or two explosions, this is the very serious science behind stage effects.

Featured at the The London Science Museum, The Cheltenham Science Festival, British Science Week, Forum Départemental des Sciences (Lille), and many schools 'The Brain Game' is a flexible set of fun activities that can be reconfigured for a wide range of participants. It gets people to pass messages around in a way that shows how brain cells work; it recruits the audience to play the part of axons; and it is a very exciting game! https://sites.google.com/site/mcoath/projects/the-brain-game
