Broadening Horizons: Careers Fair for Primary School Students

On Friday, 9 December 2016 members of the MRC MBU participated in a careers fair for primary school students from Bassingbourn, Fowlmere, Foxton, Hauxton, Meldreth and Kings Hedges. The event was organised by Form the Future and held in the Lord Ashcroft Building at Anglia Ruskin University.

The aim of the event was to give years 5 and 6 students a greater insight into future career options. The students were keen to hear about life in the laboratory, mitochondria and energy conversion and enjoyed assembling Lego models of enzymes involved in these cellular processes.
