Join the Society of Biology, and a host of insect and culinary experts for a special screening of the BBC documentary ‘Can eating insects save the world?' starring TV gastronaut Stefan Gates. The Society of Biology have organised this special screening, at the fantastic Glasgow Science Centre, as part of the Glasgow Science Festival. The film will be followed by an interactive discussion and Q&A with scientists and food experts who are pioneering entomophagy as a tasty, healthy and sustainable source of food for all of us. There will also be a chance to taste insects!

Speakers include Rhonda Smith from Minerva Communications; Rhonda is involved in the PROTEINSECT project. Food journalist Diane Fresquez and Craig Macfarlane from bug-cuisine pioneers, Bugs for Life will also be on the panel.

Soft drinks and nibbles (including insect tasters!) will be provided after the panel discussion.
