Year 12 Biology Trip to Apollo Victoria
Year 12 Biologists attended a series of Biology based lectures at the Apollo Victoria theatre on Friday 22nd November. The event featured many eminent scientists like Robert Winston, Adam Rutherford and Sarah-Jayne Blakemore. The audience were introduced to the work carried out by these cutting-edge scientists and we were treated to many eye-opening and thought-provoking ideas. Some of the themes included how all Europeans are descendants of Charlemagne, how genetics were used to identify the descendants of Richard III and the worryingly growing case of ineffective antibiotics. This was an exciting and educational experience and the presentations done by A level examiners were also very helpful for exam preparation.
