Ask Us Anything on Reddit

In an exciting new development for CSES, we will be hosting an Ask Me Anything (AMA) event on Reddit. If you are not familiar with the AMA format, it is where notable groups and individuals invite the community to ask them any question, which they will do their best to answer in near real-time. Please see our invitation below.

Hi Reddit, we are group of 250 engineers, scientists, innovators, technologists, digital experts and designers with a collected 45 PhDs / Professors and 35 members representing national science or engineering institutions / charities.

TL;DR:

Last week was British Science Week! We are here to answer any questions any of you have to do with science or technology and how they affect your life. There are no silly questions – ask us anything and we will try to give an easy-to-understand answer and, wherever possible, provide some further sources to enable you to do your own research/reading.

Our goal is simply to advance everyone’s understanding of science, engineering and technology and to help people be better informed about the issues likely to affect them and their families.

More info / Longer read:

CSES is a registered charity in the UK, founded in 1920. We're a volunteer group of over 250 members and our key strength is our diversity and interdisciplinary expertise. Our members come from a variety of educational, social and economic backgrounds, from industry and academia and a multitude of age groups, representing groups from the millennials all the way to the Silent Generation (our oldest member being 97)!

There has been growing dis-information globally in the last 20 years. Today's global interconnectedness, whilst being hugely beneficial for making information easily accessible to everyone, has made it ever more difficult to determine 'truth' and who to trust. As an independent charity, not affiliated or biased to any particular group, but with broad knowledge we are here to answer any questions you may have and to hopefully point you to further reading!

Our goal is simply to answer as many of your questions as we can – but we aren’t able to give advice on things – sorry! We will also be clear where what we are saying is the experience-based opinion of someone in our team.

So Reddit... Ask us anything!
