Westminster Abbey and the LASAR (Learning about Science and Religion) team invite KS4 students to ask and explore Big Questions in the spirit of great scientists of the past buried in the Abbey, such as Stephen Hawking, Charles Darwin and Sir Isaac Newton.
Big Questions bridge disciplines and do not have simple agreed answers.
In our quest for answers, we seem to have more information at our fingertips than ever before but do we give enough thought to how that knowledge comes about?
Join experts in the fields of both science and religion for a day of workshops and debates on origins, genetics, robotics, philosophy, ethics and more. Students will discover new ways to investigate Big Questions and will learn to think critically about the power and limitations of science.

Supporting the development of epistemic insight:
The Shrine of St Edward the Confessor is one of the most powerful features of the Abbey. To stand in the presence of a man who is both a saint and a monarch is awe-inspiring.
