Coming in July 2015, the STAR Lecture is titled “Sparks Will Fly: How to Hack Your Home” by Prof Danielle George, University of Manchester (Associate Dean for Teaching and Learning in the Faculty of Engineering and Physical Sciences, and Professor in the Microwave and Communications Systems Research Group).
An electrical and electronics engineer by training, Prof George will take three great inventions - a light bulb, a telephone and a motor - and show how to adapt them and transform them to do extraordinary things.
The show will be staged live for three days to more than 1,500 students aged 13 to 18 years old and will also reach thousands more ordinary Singaporeans both young and old through a delayed television broadcast on MediaCorp 5 on Monday, 19 October 2015, 6:30pm to 8:00pm .
