Rosie Reynolds, Higher Education Policy Officer at the Prisoners Education Trust would like to extend a warm welcome to BSHS members to an event at Durham University on 29th July.

The event will be exploring the provision of science education in prisons. There have been some very imaginative examples of this the Royal Astronomical Society for example have been working in prisons (https://ras200.org/bounce-back-foundation/) and Earth Scientist Dr. Phil Heron recently ran an introduction to science programme (https://philheron.com/think-like-a-scientist/) with women in prison in HMP Low Newton – which had a strong history of science angle. They are interested in inviting historians of science to join the conversation on developing new initiatives.
