St Faith’s trip to the Babraham Institute

A class of year 6 children from St. Faith's School recently visited the Imaging Facility on campus to learn more about cells. They were thrilled to see the  microscopes and detailed images that we can take on them. They also used the microscopes we have as resource for our public engagement programme to look at a range of slides and the nematode worm C.elegans. We received a wonderful thank you letter from each child which highlighted how much they had enjoyed the afternoon.
