“Laboratory Literature” -  Anthony Poulton-Smith

Friday 26th March – 2pm – 3.15pm

For most of us science began and ended with the school laboratory, with maybe the odd documentary subjecting us to scientific terms. But just what is a scientific term? How many do we use every single day? You will be surprised how many you not only use but understand and even more surprised by their origins.
