Please note that these workshops run ALONGSIDE the Science by Design Conference; they are not instead of or following the conference so people who only want to hear Dr Wile speak can still do so or it is possible to do a mixture of Jay Wile sessions and Firelight workshops.
Hurry: Earlybird pricing closes Friday 3 June so do it now before you forget!
