Achieving results for the environment through technology: lasers, scanners & drones


Join us online as our researchers showcase their work and the impacts of technology on our environment.

We will host a live Q+A with Ben Jolly and Andrew McMillan who will showcase technology ranging from terrestrial laser scanners and drones to virtual reality headsets and how they can benefit research of our environment. Viewers will be able to look at the equipment throughout the session and ask Ben and Andrew questions.

As well as our live sessions, you can use the interactive map on our website to explore stories about science that is "good for the world".
