TUESDAY 26TH at 1:30PM



Growing up in South Africa, Cara fell in love with the ocean and all of the world’s wild places and animals. As a Christian, she loves exploring the world she believes God made, and sharing her experiences with others to help start conversations about God, science and their interactions. 

Cara studied marine biology and oceanography at the University of Cape Town. She has been lucky enough to travel to different countries, learning about the environment and how she can help protect animals and wild areas. Cara has worked with owls, turtles, seabirds and coral reefs. Join her for this workshop, to spend some time thinking about how we can use science to learn more about taking good care of our planet, and how she believes that is what God wants us to do.

What is The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion?     

The Faraday Institute for Science and Religion is a world-leading interdisciplinary research and dissemination institute for science and religion, based in Cambridge, UK.  Founded in 2006 (as part of St. Edmund’s College), it is now an independent charitable organisation with membership of the Cambridge Theological Federation, an affiliate of Cambridge University.  
The mission of The Faraday Institute is to shed new light on life’s big questions through academically rigorous research in the field of science and religion; to provide life-changing resources for those with interests in science and faith through research dissemination, education and training; and, to catalyse a change in attitude towards science and faith, through outreach to schools, colleges, the scientific community, religious institutions and the general public.

About The Faraday Institute Youth and Schools Programme        

'Faraday Kids', 'Faraday Teens' and 'Faraday Educators' are outputs of The Faraday Institute Youth and Schools Programme. 

Our work is stimulated by research and experience which demonstrates that the majority of children and young people have important 'Big Questions' about the interactions of science and religious faith but that these generally go unexplored as teachers, parents and others with influence are often under-resourced to support them. Our work aims to equip children, young people and those who influence them with opportunities and resources to explore these questions, recognising that they can have significant and long-term impact on the worldviews and societies developed as these young people grow up.

The Faraday Institute’s work has always included outreach to young people and since 2013 we have been developing a wide-reaching and successful programme, providing opportunities for thousands of young people of all ages to explore positive science-faith interactions through accessible interactive sessions and training for those in positions of influence.
