This exciting day is specifically designed for Higher Line Biology students and it was a fantastic event.  We heard some of the best scientists who are working at the cutting edge of their specialisms and also had the opportunity to attend two sessions from a specialist Biology examiner, giving hints and tips to help improve exam results.  The day (as well as the literature provided) provided a look forward for pupils thinking about choosing these subjects at university and how science can lead to an interesting career.

The day was exciting and thought-provoking for all who attended.

The Scientists who appeared on the day were:

  • Prof Robert Winston, On Human Progress
    Prof Steve Jones, Is Man Just Another Mammal?
  • Dr Jenny Rohn, On bacteria and antibiotics: Revenge of the Microbes
  • Dr Hannah Critchlow Demystifying the human brain
