Big Biology Day 2019

Great fun was had on Saturday, 5 October when members of the MBU took various activities to Hills Road Sixth Form College for Big Biology Day 2019.

The event was attended by visitors of all ages, who tried out our new Mito-gami activity, along with our "Destroying Mutant Mitochondrial DNA" game and mtDNA sequencing puzzles.

There was much conversation about the science and career options ... and a quiet corner for colouring.

 

 

 

Reaching out to Lowestoft and Beccles

On 18 and 19 September 2019, Dr Martin King visited three schools and a sixth form college in Suffolk, giving a 'masterclass' on mitochondrial biology, an overview of life at university (and Cambridge!) and helping with university interview techniques.

This tour was arranged in collaboration with Kathryn Singleton, School Liaison Officer at St Catharine's College, Cambridge - the College that Martin joined when he arrived in Cambridge.

The feedback questionnaires are currently under analysis - at first glance it looks as though Martin did a great job!
