Students from a range of Science courses visited the University of Lincoln last week. Insights were provided by a range of Lecturers and PhD students, demonstrating how the fundamentals of BioChemistry and Forensics are brought to life in the academic setting of the university.
Students really got involved in a range of activities with Dr Mark O’Dell, including Squeaky-pop tests with a difference (!), Creation of Non-Newtonian Physics Materials, and later, Finger-print Analysis, Bone Identification and Blood-Splatter Analysis. “That was really cool!” commented one wide-eyed student after the BioChemistry lecture, before eagerly adding, “What’s next?” Students were delighted with their experience and really felt it helped them to get a feel for the learning spaces.
Meanwhile, they were also impressed by the evidence of investment in new buildings and facilities external to the labs. The link to Nottingham University to develop new teaching facilities for a Medical School shows just how high the university is aiming, and our students were impressed. Long Road was very grateful for the time and effort that the university put into the trip and looks forward to more collaborations in the future.
