Tiptree

Jan 2020

This month we explored medicine and drugs. We heard a bit about the history, it was pretty gory and hap-hazard for a long time but, with the 20 century there came changes which eventually morphed into what we know today. We found out how long and how much it costs for a drug to be developed and researched in the lab, through it’s development, to when it’s prescribed or available to buy. The timescale and costs are huge.
Next month we are looking at Plastics, how they are made and why they are so important in good and bad ways.
