Biology students get a taste of University

A Level Biology students recently spent a day at Southampton University.

Below is an account by Ellie (Year 12): 

On Tuesday 24th January Year 12 biology students were given a chance to go to Southampton University.  At the university, we were informed about all courses the university could offer ranging from marine biology and zoology, to conservation courses, to neuroscience, biochemistry and medical degrees, as well as many others that would not necessarily be immediately thought of when considering Biology. As well as this, we were given a tour of the university itself and we took part in neurological experiments. 

The highlight of the trip was getting to use some of the university’s equipment to carry out a degree style practical in which we were able to measure brain waves to look at brain activity and even simulate a lie detector test based on our brainwave results.
