Devon’s Pioneering Technologists : A coterie of influential mathematicians and engineers

A talk by Colin White.

Devon has had many scientific pioneers but some are more well known than others. In this entertaining presentation, Colin White will highlight the life and innovations of four of the less-well-known Devon scientists:

  • George Bidder of Moretonhampstead
  • Thomas Fowler of Great Torrington
  • William Froude from Dartington and
  • John Lethbridge from Newton Abbot

Come and hear about their contribution to our scientific heritage, still impacting us today.

This is a joint event organised by The Devonshire Association and Sidmouth Science Festival. Admission £3 by card (preferred) or cash, at the door.
