  • An understanding and appreciation of science is more important than it ever was... This Institution has a marvellous record of bringing the understanding of science to children and today it can do it with technical devices and ingenuity which gives it a bigger reach than ever before. So the Ri couldn’t be more important.

  • Think I'm going to join the Ri...The visual aids here are great, and the use of embroidery-to illustrate chromosomes-alone is fab. Excellent science communicationat its best (and this from someone who did no science at all after 2nd year at 'big' school)!
