After a successful SCIENCE OF CURRY night, we've got some more events coming up that will combine a good time out with a dash of science. We're working on a science of seafood which will be held in July, a great BIG science quiz later in the year, and a special breakfast - The Science of Sport, which will be held on October 18th, the day before the ALL BLACKS vs Wallabies clash at the Forysth Barr Stadium.
