Science in our forests – presented by Scion

Discover weird, wonderful and practical science at Rainbow Springs this summer at the Science in our Forests exhibition.

Find out about the world class science happening in our forests and see what the future might look like. See live insects up close, learn more about how we can protect our forests, have a go at flying a miniature drone and get a glimpse into the future of a wood powered world.

Scion scientists will also present a variety of educational talks to inspire and educate you and your up-and-coming scientists throughout January.

The exhibition runs until 9 February 2018 and is presented by Scion.
