Kew in the Digital Age lecture a great success

Kew Gardens is not only a beautiful garden but also a leading centre of scientific research.

In a lively and informative lecture at the University last week, Professor Angela McFarlane, Head of the Public Engagement and Learning team at the Royal Botanic Gardens, discussed the challenges of engaging, entertaining and informing the millions of visitors who go to Kew Gardens each year.

In particular she focused on how Kew has been using digital technology to communicate and develop understanding of the science and thus further enhance the experience of visiting Kew.

In her vote of thanks, Dr Danae Stanton-Fraser, Associate Dean for Research in Humanities & Social Sciences, pointed out how inter-disciplinary the lecture had been encompassing science, information technology, and education highlighting the range of complex issues facing multi-faceted organisations such as Kew.
