Dr Lisa Connolly, a Lecturer based at the Institute for Global Food Security in Queen’s University Belfast and active participant in the PLS programme, invited more than 300 PLS participants (children/teachers/parents/scientists) to a celebration event at the Institute on the Tuesday 19th May 2015.
The students, teachers and their associated scientists had worked together on science projects over the last few months. This event was organised to give the children (hopefully scientists of tomorrow) an opportunity to experience presenting and discussing their science projects in a lecture theatre environment.
In addition to presenting their work in front of an audience, the children were given a fully supervised interactive tour of the Institute's laboratories, a chance to see research in action and also speak with some of the scientists to find out about their ground-breaking research.
