This year, UCL Engineering launched a brand new series of virtual lectures exploring hot topics in STEM and key research across our departments.
For six, exciting weeks throughout spring/summer 2021, we held a series of stimulating and thought-provoking lectures on several STEM-related topics.
All lectures were free to attend and open to anyone wanting to discover more about these fascinating subjects. Each week, we were introduced to a different academic expert at UCL, with each host excited to highlight and share their ideas and their research with the audience. Spring into STEM lectures are designed to prompt us all to think creatively about how we can apply innovative STEM solutions and novel approaches to the complexities of the world around us.
If you missed a live lecture or simply want to view any of the recordings again, choose from the available list below (more added each week), and be sure to join us again next year for even more exciting lectures and disruptive thinking.
