With busy day to day lives leisure time is important to relax, unwind or try out a new hobby or sporting craze
This month on the Hidden Science action we are focusing on the scientific aspects of Leisure and Lifestyle to show young people that science jobs can be hidden behind their favourite pastimes, helping them to explore and find out which area interests them. For more information they can look at the Leisure & Lifestyle section already present on the Future Morph website.
