Year 9s visit the LifeLab

January 15, 2018

A group of Year 9 pupils visited Lifelab at Southampton General Hospital with Miss Blurton and Ms Fry. The team at Lifelab work closely with researchers and scientists to promote healthy living to reduce the risk of life threatening diseases. The pupils were able to have a go at using some of the lab equipment for themselves. They also learnt how to perform CPR and had the opportunity to take a closer look at their own DNA. There were also 2 sessions with scientists where pupils were given an insight into new advances in technology and to gain an idea of what a career in the sciences may look like. It was a really unique and interesting day and we had a great time!
