Voice of the Future 2012
The Society of Biology is organising, on behalf of the science and engineering community, Voice of the Future 2012. This is an unique opportunity for young scientists and engineers, including A-level students, to participate in a Science Question Time with Members of the House of Commons Select Committee on Science & Technology.
Voice of the Future 2012 will be taking place during National Science and Engineering week on Wednesday 14th March 2012 in the Boothroyd Room, Portcullis House, House of Commons.
On the day, the normal select committee format will be reversed. In the surroundings of a committee room in Parliament, young scientists and engineers will sit in the seats normally reserved for MPs. The MPs, including the Chair, Andrew Miller MP, will appear before the ‘committee’ as ‘witnesses’ to answer Questions from the scientists.
The event will also feature the Minister of Science, Rt Hon David Willetts MP, and the Shadow Minister for Innovation and Science, Chi Onwurah MP, who will also be questioned by the audience of young scientists and engineers.
So that you can stay in tune with the discussion, the event will be broadcast live on the BBC Democracy Live website. More Information about the event and ways you can get involved, including the opportunity to submit your own questions, will be available here shortly.
