Welcome to our Network!
Dr James Kimmance presented an interesting an thought-provoking presentation on what the real risks are to our critical infrastructure, what is being done to mitigate the risks... and what should really be done to ensure that our industries, communications, transport systems etc.have enough resilience to stand up to so-called "black swan" events. Event held at the Ron Cooke Hub at The Univeristy of York. Thanks to Andy Titley for organising the event.
We regret that the "Lifeskills" event planned for 20 February had to be cancelled. Please contact the NY Committee if you would like to arrange one of these events in future (we need to guarantee at leat 15 attendees).
In the New Year, the NY Committee was pleased to be able to secure funds to assist in the eductational visit to CERN by students from The University of York Department of Electronics. Committee member Atif Syed organised the trip which included a rare subterranean tour. Full report to follow.
IET NY LN and the local branch of the Institute of Physics organised a STEM outreach lecture at Easingwold School entitled: "Surviving On The Edge of Space". David Jenkins and Adam NIchols from The University of York gave a highly entertaining presentation involving liquid nitrogen, frozen bananas, vacuum chambers and.... an exploding marshmallow man. Thanks to Liz Hooper, Catherine Brophy and Patrick Mason for assiting in the organisation of the event.
