Workshop 1: Analysing Sugars
Carbohydrates are an essential part of the human diet but there is now a huge body of evidence that indicates added sugar is responsible for many of society's health problems. This workshop will start with an introduction to some of the special properties of dietary sugars that can be used to identify them. We will then proceed to two quantitative analyses, based on enzymes and colorimetric reactions, of lactose in milk and sucrose in soft drinks.
Workshop 2: Human Evolution: Where do we come from?
Although evolution via natural selection was proposed by Charles Darwin way back in 1859, much of our current knowledge about the way humans evolved has come about in just the last few decades. Vested interests, inflated egos and even conspiracy and scientific fraud hindered advancement for more than 100 years after Darwin published On The Origin Of Species. The story of our understanding of human evolution is as controversial as it is compelling.
