Sat 15 June

The Biology Ballerina, Dr Eleonora Moratto, presents her research through ballet. A common thread between the arts and the sciences is storytelling. In both scenarios you’re building worlds, and creating an understanding of the mechanisms that make the system work (or not work), and the relationships within that bubble.

Enjoy an on pointe STEM performance while learning about one way we can grow our food pathogen free.
