Representatives from the Institute’s Compton Laboratory visited The Downs School in Compton last week to donate a couple of new microscopes which will aid pupils at the school with their science practical classes. In addition to the microscopes, the Institute also donated two specially designed digital cameras to capture what the students will see when using the microscopes. As the secondary school is federated with Compton Primary School, both educational facilities will benefit.
Last weekend, scientists from our Compton Laboratories joined bioscience researchers from across the UK at the Great British Science Festival in London. Thousands flocked to the event in Bethnal Green to find out how the latest research in bioscience helps to fuel us, feed us, and keeps us healthy.
A team of researchers from Pirbright’s Avian Viral Disease Programme are heading to east London next week to bring you the best of British Bioscience. The Great British Bioscience Festival is the culmination of a year-long tour, enabling visitors to explore the fascinating world of biology through interactive science exhibits from real scientists.
