Event description

Description

There are 6 million parasite species on the planet, 9 million insect species, and if you were to add up all the insects in the world it would come to around 10 quintillion! This is a bug’s world. And as we go about our everyday lives and want to explore more exotic holiday destinations further afield, one thing is inevitable, we are going to encounter them – the good, the bad and the ugly.
Through fascinating demonstrations, including a live insect dissection, and interactive experiments, Prof James Logan will reveal the lives of the bugs we encounter when on holiday, the ground-breaking science behind the control of the deadly diseases they transmit, and the truth about how to stay safe when on holiday.

Discounted tickets are available to Members of the Ri. Find out more about how to join our community.

The doors will open at approximately 6.30pm, with a prompt start at 7.00pm.
