Framing the sciences – What makes a scientific discipline? (457)

Join us to discuss the nature of scientific enquiry across the different sciences. How can we characterise the individual sciences, whilst also highlighting the common approaches? Take the opportunity to contribute to our proposals for improving curriculum in the sciences and move on from suggestions of a single ‘scientific method'.
