Academics from the Schools of Psychology and Health and Social Care collaborated with the College of Science to deliver a range of livestreamed lectures aimed at secondary school pupils.

Subjects ranged from the sleeping mind, and the evolutionary roots of prejudice and aggression, to the working of the heart and circulatory system. We have added the links to the lectures below as a free resource for teachers and pupils.
