Merseyside is rich in science - historically, academically, industrially and culturally, this area has, and continues to have, a disproportionately large impact on science and technology. However, that impact often goes unseen or unappreciated by the majority of local people. The British Science Association is there to redress that imbalance and promote an awareness of the role that science has in everybody's lives.
Happy 4th Birthday Liverpool SciBar!
Discover and debate science monthly in Merseyside at the Liverpool SciBar, now 4 years old. Held on the first Tuesday of every month at the Ship and Mitre, Dale Street, Liverpool, the SciBar provide an opportunity to learn and talk about science in an informal and relaxed environment over a coffee or a pint. Details of the next SciBar are as follows:
The Arabic numeral system
Tuesday 4th June 2013
Ship and Mitre, Dale Street, Liverpool
Where did the Arabic numeral system come from? What problems did it solve? How did it spread to the West?
At SciBar in June, Dr Mansur Mohammadi discusses this, at the time, revolutionary counting system through the life of Leonard of Pisa, also known as Fibonacci, who championed its use in his book 'Liber Abaci' written in 1202.
