Think. Ask. Discuss.“There are no foolish questions and no man becomes a fool until he has stopped asking questions.” Anthony Robbins
The Far Horizon Project uses science and technology to interest both adults and young people in the learning process, and then seeks to use that interest to raise the aspirations of local communities. By using a series of talks, linked into a framework to encourage debate and discussion, the Project links regeneration, education and business programmes to scientific programmes.
Generally speaking, the talks will be purposely aimed at the populist end, concentrating on such subjects as Artificial Intelligence and Robotics, time travel and superstrings at one extreme and The Science of Bending a Football Like Beckham on the other. Such talks are always very well attended by young people in particular- a recent time travel talk attracted an audience of 150 people from all age groups.
However, the Far Horizon Project is not just about talks, it has a much wider ambition in its mission and therefore ties into several key government and local authority strategies regarding lifelong & family learning, regeneration, youth engagement and community cohesion. A new book, “The 50 Year Horizon: Science & Technology for the Non-Believer” collates the main ideas in these talks with a discussion of how science can be used as a regeneration tool within your community. The book will be out for Christmas.
The Far Horizon Project will eventually become a foundation to promote science and technology to young people and their parents, in a way that is fun, engaging and interactive.
