Cleverly Done


So, to set the scene… myself, and three of my colleagues. All of us grown scientist types. Sitting around a big conference table duly socially distanced. Masked, gloved… ok, that last was because we were all working on a task together. Unusually, this was not a lab task. But you get the picture.
