We have been chosen to present a stand at the Royal Society Summer Science Exhibition in July this year. We will be presenting our work on butterfly wing patterns and genomes to over 10,000 people including the press and the Fellows of the Royal Society.
Right now we have lots of ambitious plans including a video about the work, with footage from field trips to Panama and Surinam. A computer game that includes aspects of wing pattern genetics and something about mimicry selection. A cage with live butterflies. And an exhibit with some of Bates’ original correspondence with Darwin on the subject of mimicry and speciation.
We’ll keep you posted as the plans progress.
