Drones workshop in the invention rooms in White City

This event is part of the Friday Forums, a series of events consisting of a panel followed by an audience discussion. It is a rule of the Forum that half of the time is given over to audience discussion. Do come along expecting to be involved in lively discussion and debate. All Friday Forums are free with lunch provided and are open to all College members.

For The Good Science Project‘s fourth Friday Forum of 2024, we’ll consider how a scientist’s age affects the way they do science.
