than ever before gain an appreciation of science and the

Darwin Centre Live webcasts.
During the year we delivered a full schedule of study tours
and training in the natural sciences for life-long learners.
The popular Summer Programme provided workshops, day classes,
courses, coach tours and days out for adults keen to continue
their education. Once again we offered the Sharing our
Skills courses for museum professionals and the continuing
