Plymouth scibar are extremely excited to be welcoming Dr Leigh Jackson back to The B-Bar, to talk about his recent first-hand experience helping to combat Ebola in Sierra Leone!
Leigh volunteered for a month in the diagnostic lab at the treatment centre in Makeni, Sierra Leone.
About Plymouth scibar
Plymouth scibar is the Plymouth Branch of the British Science Association, whose aim is to encourage scientists and technologists to develop a dialogue with the public in a comfortable and accessible environment.
Scibars are NOT lectures or seminars - they ARE informal discussions for the non-scientist, the person who just wants to know more what is happening around them.
In many cases we will be discussing topics of current interest such as climate change, fish conservation, ageing, science and religion, the media’s relationship to science, alternative (non carbon) energies, nanotechnology, etc.
Plymouth scibar note
Attendance is free for this event but we suggest a contribution of £2 per person. The British Science Association is a voluntary organisation which relies on contributions from its audience to continue running events. All money received goes back into running similar projects in the city and wider South West region!
