The Dunn School’s Ulrike Gruneberg helped inspire school children to consider university study and career options in science, when she delivered a workshop at the Museum of Natural History in Oxford on 3 December 2015.

The ‘Cells in the Spotlight’ workshop was well received by more than 200 ‘A’ level biology students from schools in Oxfordshire and surrounding counties.

Commenting on the event, a student from Bartholomew School, Eynsham, said: “It made me think of the range of topics that biology includes and that I might specialise in when I leave school”.

The museum hosts a number of public engagement events throughout the year and regularly draws on members of the Dunn School to be involved as presenters and facilitators.
