Summer Schools and Student Visits

Spotlight: DNA Masterclass

Pupils aged 12-14 years from the Learning Schools Trust were introduced to UCL and studying science at university.  They spent time with academic staff in the labs and were taught how to produce a DNA restriction.

Spotlight: DNA-RNA Protein Outreach Day 

UCL Biosciences led a very successful masterclass for hearing-impaired and profoundly deaf pupils from Sweyne Park School and Twickenham Academy.

Pupils were introduced to the university through a variety of talks and lab tours.  The aim was to help pupils realise that their disability does not have to be a barrier to higher education.

Talks were given by Venetia Stoby of UCL Disabilities, Dr Ray Noble of the Institute of Women's Health, who is profoundly deaf, and Abdi Gas, a former UCL student who is profoundly deaf and now runs a charity dedicated to encouraging and facilitating deaf people in to the mainstream.

Lab tours were given by research scientists, Dr Finn Werner and Dr John Christodoulou both of the Department of Structural and Molecular Biology and Dr Matt Piper of the Institute of Healthy Ageing.
