Outreach lecture to teachers

I gave a lecture to secondary school teachers this week as part of the Goldsmith’s Company’s Science for Society Course on astrophysics.

Having heard about the Big Bang model and some of its problems from my colleague Dr David Mulryne, I was given the task of outlining how the inflationary paradigm tries to solve these problems and some of the reasons we think it is a good model of the early universe.

My slides are now available on slideshare.net. As I have mentioned before I prefer minimal text in my presentations, allowing the audience to focus on me instead of paragraphs of text on the slides.

Update 03/05/2012: Removed embedded slideshare widget to avoid having all the tracking cookies.



A physicist by training, I am curious about the world around us, from the smallest to the largest scales. I am now a part of the Pivotal Data Science team and work on interesting data science and predictive analytics projects across a wide range of industries. On Twitter I'm @ianhuston, and on Github I'm ihuston.
