Your bonus for ten and no conferring: When and where was the first Botanical University Challenge held?
It was the brainchild of the University of Reading's very own Dr Jonathan Mitchley and Dr John Warren (Aberystwyth University) and was held at Kew in 2016! It was a great success and the follow up celebrates botany, botanists and the beauty and importance of plants in the 21st century. In this fun event, University teams will compete for the coveted trophy by answering questions on plant related topics.
This is the opening event of the Golden Jubilee celebrations of 50 years of masters botany teaching at Reading.
Admission free. Booking is not required.
