Gene-ius addition to Science Week

Dear Parent/Carer
Social, Generic and Developmental Psychiatry MRC Festival Preview Event
The SGDP Department at Kings College have invited Lyndhurst to visit them in their modern research centre to discover how our genes make us unique.  The children will meet the scientists, find out about how they work and learn about the latest research in genetics.  They will also have an opportunity to join in with lots of fun activities to explain and experience science in action:

  • Extract DNA from strawberries 
  • Control a toy car using only your mind 
  • Build your own model brain 
  • Learn about how genetics determines height and other features 
  • See how brain activity changes when you carry out different tasks 
  • ……… and plenty more!

These events will be during the school day on Friday, 16th June.

Kind Regards
