Description

Kickstart - Animal Magic Workshop

I organised a workshop for this programme introducing the research carried out by the Roslin Institute for 4th & 5th year secondary schoolchildren. This involved liasing with University of Edinburgh WP staff, writing an abstract for inclusion in the Kickstart brochure, organising staff at The Roslin Institute to participate in activities which included finding a gene using computers, demonstrating prion disease whilst also explaing use of a microscope and several seminars by academics who explained a little about their work and how they got into Science.
