BCHC takes part in British Science Week

At the beginning of March, Aberystwyth University took part in British Science week, a UK wide initiative to celebrate science, technology engineering and maths. Over the course of 3 days pupils from local primary and secondary schools visited Penglais campus to engage in a range of lively science activities, games and quizzes.

Undergraduate, Masters and PhD students together with University staff came together to deliver an impressive selection of activities highlighting different aspects of on-going parasitology and drug discovery research. Pupils were introduced to the pH scale and encouraged to measure the pH of different solutions, experiment with building their own drug molecules and even perform their own anthelmintic drug screens!

This was a fantastic opportunity to showcase the very best research taking place in Aberystwyth right now and a brilliant opportunity to inspire a future generation of scientists!

Well done to all involved!
