National Youth Science Forum 2014

11 February 2014

The Solomon Lab (RSB Division of Plant Sciences) hosted groups of students from the National Youth Science Forum in late January and early February. The students are about to enter their final year of secondary school, and the forum provided an opportunity to learn about what scientists do in a working biology lab.

The students took part in exercises in bioinformatics, fungal microbiology and gel electrophoresis. The forum was very successful and the students were left with very positive impressions of biology and science more broadly.
