Science in Action

The first lesson after the AS exams was a surprise to the AS biology students as they were to be volunteers in a research project for the University of Hertfordshire, Pharmacology Department.

 The first lesson after the AS exams was a surprise to the AS biology students as they were to be volunteers in a research project for the University of Hertfordshire, Pharmacology Department. The bottom line was it didn’t hurt! The top line was it was fun and, most importantly, the findings could be useful in the development of drugs to prevent conditions of the skin. The PhD student who conducted the research demonstrated the scientific skills which we teach, such as fair testing, and explained how the method was conducted so that the results would be valid and reliable. Science was definitely in action and we were part of it.
