Science in the News

At Plymouth Museum, some of our research students have just given a series of public talks on the following subjects that have recently been in the news.

·         Ever wondered how they determine what is horse meat and what is beef?

·         Climate change, what is causing it and how will it affect you?

·         Are pesticides killing all of our bees?

Keep a lookout for future events. There was a lively discussion about the science behind the most recent headlines. Plus free tea and cake!
