                Lecture Overview

               'Using an educational neuroscience approach to improve maths and science achievement in primary school'

Since Dr George Birkbeck created the London Mechanics’ Institution in 1823, the organisation that is now Birkbeck, University of London, has been the gateway for ambitious people to study in the evening. In so doing they change their own lives - and make an immediate impact on business, the economy and our entire society.

In February 2020 Birkbeck will mark 100 years since the College officially became part of the University of London.

This lecture series will be on the theme of “opening education” showcasing Birkbeck’s unique commitment to access and excellence.
