Every year in March, sciences and their importance in our everyday lives are celebrated during British Science Week. Promoted by the British Science Association, it provides an opportunity for people of all ages across the UK to take part in science, engineering and technology events and activities.
This year, to celebrate British Science Week, we took our Glow in the Dark Science roadshow to Tower Bridge Primary School in Southwark. Throughout the day, nearly 200 pupils aged 5 to 11 took part in a series of practical andl fun activities around the use of fluorescence in modern biomedical sciences.
The workshops were delivered by researchers from the Centre: Rachel Jackson, Tristan Varela, Kinga Bercsenyi, Florence Giger, Thanu Poobalasingam, Louisa Boddy, Andy Symonds, Albert Sanchez Aguilera Lopez, Katherine Treves and Clemens Kiecker.
