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

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
