  • Genetics Talk

    Published 04/05/16
    maxresdefaultThanks to the organisation of the science society, Rhys Jones gave a fascinating talk to a few sixth form students on the ability of scientists to add a fluorescent protein to proteins of biological interest in order to follow its progress through organisms. This technique is used by scientists who don't have access to more expensive Scanning Electron Microscopes to see structures inside cells. It basically consists of cutting a section of a protein that creates the fluorescent glow of jellyfish and pasting it onto the end of the protein that the scientist wants to observe. This can then be easily seen by scientists as it goes through synthesis, transport through the cell, and different functions.

  • Engineering Education Scheme

    Published 03/05/16
    Back in September of 2015, 8 budding engineers met in the design technology department of the senior school and were tasked with designing and producing something entirely new. With no brief other than the requirement to solve a problem, we set about trying to invent something entirely new, with the end goal of presenting it to a team of engineers from successful companies from all areas of the industry. With the help of two engineers from ARM, one team set about designing an automated pill dispenser to assist pharmacists, while the other team attempted to solve a very local problem – bike theft – by designing an electronic bike lock, which could be controlled from a mobile phone.IMG_5498 (1)
