Event type: meet the scientist, drop-in
Free, no booking required
See science in action in the Cocoon's Specimen Preparation Area.
Museum curators Jovita Yesilyurt and Ranee Prakash are working with V Factor volunteers to prepare botanical specimens for digitisation, bringing the historical Banksian collection into the twenty-first century.
Look in on work being done, uncover more about the collection and explore some of the secrets of Joseph Banks's Herbarium with our volunteers outside the lab.
The Specimen Preparation Area is located on the upper walkway in the Cocoon.
