TV presenter and scientist, Simon Watt, is bringing his ‘Cracking The Code: The Genetics of Superheroes’ Roadshow to Nerve Centre!

Comic books are filled with mutants; heroes and villains alike, from Wolverine to Magneto, whose special abilities are genetic in their origin. Simon looks into what are real mutants 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!
