Food for Thought | December 2019

Food for Thought was a series of lunchtime events in the city in which UC academics delivered 15-minute talks covering a range of topics from biology in space to the importance of volunteering in schools.

The events have been a fun way to engage with people in the city and share the exciting research taking place at UC that’s making an impact across Ōtautahi Christchurch and beyond.

There will be a video released shortly capturing the highlights from the events. Thank you to those who took part, and to those who made it along to the events to enjoy some inspiring talks (and delicious food) on your lunch break!

Day three saw Associate Professor Billy O’Steen speak about why volunteering in schools is especially important for Aotearoa New Zealand.
Professor Richard Jones spoke about a forensic brainwave analysis project going on at UC.

Sarah Kessans spoke about biology in space and ways that exploring life in space brings benefit to life on Earth.

A great example of working together as one – Kotahitanga – to pull off a successful series of events showcasing exciting projects and research taking place at UC.
