Year 12 Chemistry and Biology students visited the Manchester Institute of Biotechnology for their annual Open Day.
This purpose-built interdisciplinary research institute houses over 600 research staff working on projects in the fields of physics, chemistry, mathematics, computation, engineering and biology; all of whom are committed to working across discipline boundaries.
Our students got the opportunity to talk to the researchers and experience hands-on demonstrations of their various projects. During the afternoon, students were given a guided tour of the laboratories and some of the specialist equipment used by the institute. The students thoroughly enjoyed the day and were inspired by the many research opportunities available.
