Here are some upcoming talks at BRLSI which may also spark your interest!

This Thursday, Dr Helen Liang gives a talk on ‘How can plastics be recycled?’. Dr Liang takes a deep dive into the complexities of plastic recycling and questions how we can use material resources sustainably. Becoming ever more important in today’s world, the talk will celebrate progress and sheds some light on the road ahead.

Following her talk, next week we have an interesting discussion from Dr Ben Aldiss with ‘Who’s afraid of the big bad wasp?’. As we are approaching wasp season, this talk will explore why they sting us, their amazing abilities, the uses of wasps and most importantly how to avoid being stung!
