Y12 Biology in Action TripPosted on: 08/12/2021
The Compton, A level Biology students, attended a fascinating conference held at London's Emmanuel Centre on Tuesday, December 7th. Everyone was inspired by five interactive and engaging sessions delivered by renowned scientists:
Exploring the wonders of the deep
Helen Scales, Marine Biologists, writer and broadcaster
Can you smell what I smell? How the nose knows
Darren Logan, Head of Research, Waltham Petcare Science Institution
Ageless: The new science of getting older without getting old
Andrew Steele, Scientist, author and presenter
Who Do You Think You Are?
Chris Willmott, University of Leicester
Greg Foot, science presenter and communicator. Students also received a special session with hints and tips for biology revision and examination success. It was an unmissable and tremendously popular day, and it will no doubt be an excellent piece of evidence for students to include in their UCAS applications.
