SLCU hosted 25 A Level Biology students from Hinchingbrooke School for a tour of our building, cafe table chat with our scientists about what they do and Science Escape Room.

Reactions to the visit have been overwhelmingly positive, with students citing a great atmosphere, friendly researchers and engaging and thought provoking activities.
