28/03/17 - STEM Module Visits School
Year 10, 11 & 12 were treated to a fantastic workshop with the STEM Module on Monday 27th April 2017. The workshop was looking at microbiology and pupils learnt about different aseptic techniques used.
Pupils got to culture their own bacteria using agar plates learning about techniques such as bacteria streaking. They looked at how antibiotics work and were shown how they can be used to treat infections.
Pupils also got to explore the bacteria that lives on their body and were able to look at different types of bacteria that live on their hands. Pupils also got to look at different bacteria under very powerful microscopes.
The day was indeed very useful as pupils who are taking GCSE Double Award Science
will need to know about these processes as part of their biology modules.
Many thanks to the STEM MODULE for their time and for providing a very enjoyable and useful programme for pupils.
