Catch-up on last month's Lates

What was the show about?

Museum scientists Zoë Hughes, Darren Choonea, Jon Ablett and Sara Motaghian were put to the test in unfamiliar fields to demonstrate how versatile they are in the world of science.

Teams competed against each other in a fact or fiction round, then their opponents with their own home-brewed science statements.

At the end of the show, the audience hadthe chance to bring their own science myths to the table to be unwrapped by our scientists.

The Museum is closed but our work continues

As a charity we need your help. With our doors closed, we're losing vital income. We're doing everything we can to continue to connect people to nature by bringing the Museum to you through inspiring stories and educational activities. 

So if you could help us with a donation - no matter the size - we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
