Catching the science bug: apprentice placement scheme success at The Dunn School
- 19 August 2016
Lab coats and safety goggles beckon for Oxfordshire teenagers Jasmin Ullaskumar and Elizabeth Moulson, inspired to develop careers in science following work experience placements at the Dunn School in August 2016.
The two-week placements, part of the STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) Apprentice Placements Programme gave the 16 year olds a varied insight into the life of the department. The school students spent time with the services team handling deliveries and making media, and with Carolin Muller from Conrad Nieduszynski’s group gaining hands on lab experience including conducting experiments with yeast extracts and using the autoclave.
