Wyke 6th Form College

last modified Aug 02, 2013 01:58 PM

The Laboratory was pleased to welcome a group of science pupils from Wyke 6th Form College in Hull. They had a tour of the Laboratory and Plant Growth Facilities and had a discussion with staff from Science and Plants for Schools on the design of scientific posters for school classrooms. It is hoped that the pupils came away with the message that plant science is a rapidly developing area of growing interest and investment. For many pupils, this was their first visit to a research facility of any type. Coming just days after the Laboratory was awarded the Stirling Prize,  their visit may have rather unfairly skewed their perceptions of what research facilities are generally like!
