The British Council is happy to host ‘Latest Science for All’- a monthly series of science talk with Professor Dr Muhammad Ibrahim. He is an eminent professor and physician from the University of Dhaka. The session is open to students of class 6-12 and to all adults.

The topic of this month is 'The origin of the materials we are made of'. The materials in our body came from our food; but where is the ultimate origin of these materials, particularly the elements in them? Modern research has shown that these were created in some very fundamental processes in the whole universe, which are intricately connected with the birth of the universe, as well as with the evolution of the stars giving rise to generations of new stars. We are indeed made of materials of stellar origins.

This programme will be telecasted by the television channel Bangla Vision once a month. In every episode of science talk, there will be a quiz competition where a question based on the topic of that day's Science Talk will be asked to the viewers of the programme. The name of the winner will be announced in the following episode.
