Overview

 

Horniman Museum, 100 London Road, Forest Hill, London, SE23 3PQ

Should we bring back dinosaurs? What about a woolly mammoth? If scientists were able to recreate extinct animals, it might allow them to be studied to answer questions such as why they became extinct in the first place. But would it be right to do this?

Come along to the Horniman Museum's Cafe Scientifique where a number of scientists will try to convince us to bring back an extinct creature. Ask questions, take part in the debate, then vote for the creature you would like to resurrect!

This event is free but places are limited. Please book in advance by emailing marketing@horniman.ac.uk or call 020 8699 1872 ext 196.

Suitable for adult and children aged 8 and over.

Free refreshments available.

This event has been organised as part of Capital Science and the Society's 350th anniversary celebrations in 2010.
