For the Love of Science 2019

For the Love of Science

In the era of ‘alternative facts’ the need for scientists to share what they learn with others has never been more important. To find out how well actual facts are being shared from the source, the Science Nation is going to experiment on a panel of scientists and their partners to find out just how much information is transmitted. Join the Science Nation in May for some fun and to learn a thing or two as we put love and science to the test.
