Summary

Science has delivered untold good to humankind…from antibiotics to Wifi…but what about the bad and the ugly sides of scientific experimentation?

What ethical norms have been set aside in the name of ‘the greater good’? Join us for a look back in history at some of the darker sides of science and whether the ends always justified the means.

Ticket price includes a light breakfast.
