The Genetics of Superheroes

Television presenter and scientist, Simon Watt, returns to Canterbury after a sell-out show in 2017. This time he explores comic-book mutants – those heroes and villains with superhuman powers. From Wolverine to Magneto, their special abilities are genetic in their origin. Simon examines what real mutants are like, looking at topics including genetics, mutation, DNA, and mRNA and poses the question: could we one day use genetics to make us superhuman? Perfect for families who love science and superheroes.

For ages 13+
