Science week 2014

 

The Sheffield Festival of Science and Engineering

Science week 2014 saw the group (Kate Naylor, Prachi Stafford, Andrew Frey, Charlotte Green) take an interactive workshop entitled: 'microbes: the good the bad and the downright nasty', on the road.  The 6th formers at Ridgewood academy (Doncaster) and Wickserley (Rotherham) were introduced to their own oral microflora by performing Gram stains.

 

 

They also took on some clinical case work that doubled as STI education.  Thankfully there were no Gram stain related incidents and noone fainted at the gonnorrhoeal member!
