Our presentations are aimed at shedding light on science stories that have been in the news or have caught our attention in other ways. No previous knowledge is required, but a general fascination with the natural world helps!
In each meeting we try to cover topics from both the biological and physical sciences and so topics covered this last session have ranged from the chemistry of plastic recycling to satellite observations of atmospheric winds and from isolated evolution on islands to the production of cloned rice seeds.
