Female explorers through history
"A MUST see for any young budding Zoologists, Botanists, Biologists and Adventurers."
Many of the adventurers and zoologists who we think of trekking through the jungles in the 1800s may well have had a bushy beard, however what many people don't know is that there were also some incredible women who also took up their butterfly nests to push the boundaries of science! In this talk we will explore some of the stories of the amazing women who defied the odds and changed science.
Sit with your teen and watch together. Families will get just as much from it as your teens.
What will you get from it
Informal and fun. NO pressure to be involved. You can keep your camera off if you prefer. There is the opportunity to ask questions in the chat box.
Open your mind to opportunities and come and be inspired.
