Three Kingsley Sixth Formers have taken part in a Science in Action project, which aims to encourage gifted and talented sixth formers to take their interest in science to university and beyond. The girls worked with scientists from Warwick University, alongside science students from seven other schools, carrying out a range of research projects. In one of these projects they explored the topic of enzyme kinetics, particularly relating to the e coli bacteria and the break down of lactose by b.galatosidase enzyme.
The Science in Action project for this year culminated on Thursday 12th May with an afternoon of presentations by the students to showcase their work. Each presentation was followed by a testing question and answer session by an audience of science students and research scientists from the university.
Our three students, Claudia Bowen, Frankie Moss-Lawton and Alice Stevenson, all received positive reviews for their work and are looking forward to returning to the project in the next academic year.
