History of Science songs at the BSHS Aberdeen conference, 2010

A recent Outreach and Education Committee project has been the collection of songs from the history of science.

This resulted in a lyric-writing competition in 2009 (winners here), in a blog containing historic examples, and in a session at ‘Outreach Day’ at the 2010 Aberdeen conference.
