WTS at Edinburgh International Science Festival
WTS Board Members, Andrew Gibson and Dan Ridley-Ellis, and Dan's colleague Stefan Lehneke, presented two events in the recent Edinburgh International Science Festival.
The first event was a wood identification workshop, where we looked in detail at a dissected piano, discussing the wood it was made from, and what sort of things you can look at in order to identify wood species.
The second event was a tour of the Arboretum, led by Max Coleman of the Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh, where they group looked in detail at those species of tree.
