During the summer of 2017, the MBU hosted two work experience events.
For one week in July, two Year 12 students visited individual research groups. They learnt about equipment and scientific techniques such as pipetting gels for analysis under a microscope. At the end of their visit, each student gave a short presentation about their experience.
In August, a similar programme was followed on a one-day visit by three students in Years 11 and 12.
Our young visitors and our scientists thoroughly enjoyed these events - we have received some excellent feedback - and we look forward to developing our 2018 work experience programme.
