Event description

Description

It's Algae April for Wine and Science at the MBA. We have 3 super seaweed activities for you to get involved with.

1) We have the delight of Gerald Boalch giving tours of the MBA's herbarium: The herbarium is a collection of beautifully pressed seaweeds with the oldest specimen dating back to the 1830s. There are over 3,300 specimens belonging to 386 species, quite amazing!

There will be only two tours, at 17:45 and 18:30. Please arrive approx. 10 minutes before the tour. Each tour lasts 30 minutes.

There are limited spaces on the tour (max. 10) so please book early.


2) Look at seaweeds: Learn how to identify seaweeds, look at a fascinating variety of seaweed and from a different perspective (under a microscope!) and learn some facts about seaweeds that you never knew.


3) Press your own seaweed: Gerald and the team will be holding a seaweed pressing crash course, you will be able to bring in your own seaweed or choose from a selection of ours and press your very own seaweed.
