Student biologists showed off their artistic and laboratory skills to celebrate British Science Week.
Inspired by this year’s ‘Our diverse planet’ theme, Year 12 students were tasked with using their scientific knowledge to design a poster featuring a new species which could adapt to different habitats on Earth with prizes awarded for the most creative.
Meanwhile, Year 13 students used gel electrophoresis – a technique to separate DNA fragments – to carry out genetic fingerprinting as part of their current curriculum topic.
Gemma Willis, Lecturer in Biology, said:
“The students had a fantastic time demonstrating their knowledge and skills in new ways to produce great outcomes and advance their learning.”
