Stem cell studies, wonder materials and creative experimentation were the order of the day in a celebration of science last week at Trafford College.
The College hosted a series of activities as part of British Science Week to give students a taste of all things science, both within the college and through external visits.
British Science Week, organised by the British Science Association, is a ten day celebration of the best of British science, technology, engineering and maths – featuring fascinating, entertaining and engaging events across the UK.
The week’s celebrations kicked off at Trafford College with a proteomics event and a visit to Liverpool Hope University for Level 3 Year 1 learners. For level 2 learners, an exciting visit to Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry was the order of the day where students investigated kirigami, a form of paper art as well as ‘Wonder Materials’ created by the Museum of Science and Industry, in partnership with the National Graphene Institute at The University of Manchester.
Back at the College, students enjoyed a day of innovative experiments and uploaded their projects to College’s Social Media sites as part of the pledge campaign.
All Level 2 and 3 Students rounded off the week with a Stem Cell Study Day at Manchester Museum.
