Future challenges will require future solutions, driven by the next generation of scientists and engineers.

Michael Faraday prize winner Professor Danielle George has spent a decade inspiring and engaging young researchers through her work as professor and Vice Dean for Teaching and Learning at the University of Manchester.

She is joined by her Robot Orchestra, a project with school groups in and around Manchester where young people design, build and code robots that can perform music, to explore why we must engage young people with STEM if we want to improve our future. 

This lecture is the 2018 Michael Faraday Prize Lecture, which is awarded to a practicing scientist or engineering who demonstrates excellence in the field of scientific public engagement.
