Biologists experiment for 6.2 coursework projects

By Archie Howes, 6.1

6.1 biologists recently put aside their normal routines for a day to play around with ideas and experiments for their A2 coursework projects. There was a wide variety of curiosities on display. From pond snails to woodlice mazes, water fleas to a rather obstructive amounts of bracken (sorry). It was a really good, fun day that allowed us all a chance to do some really comprehensive lab work without interruptions. It’s nice being able to spend a lot of time methodically working through a big experiment without having to squeeze it in to a lesson.

A big thank you to Richard, Katie, Vikki, Cheryl, Claire and most of all the wonderful lab technician Mary for making the day educational and enjoyable (and for putting up with everyone’s sometimes ridiculous demands).
