Here in Aberystwyth computer science we have a pair of Turing Sunflowers. They’re just seedlings right now. The idea is that Alan Turing did some research into sunflowers, so there’s a big group science experiment going on this year (as part of the Turing Centenary) to grow sunflowers and finish off the work. You can read more about the experiment here: http://www.turingsunflowers.com/.
As we’re a computer science department, we do of course have to give our sunflowers geeky names. So Amanda Clare has set up a poll here to name the Aberystwyth Sunflowers – if you’ve got any good ideas, or just want to vote for one of the existing ideas, go ahead.
