Young Scientist Programme seminar
Since 2001 the School has been offering its award-winning Young Scientists Programme to students aged 14-18 from London state schools. It gives young people the opportunity to see and experience first-hand how biomedical research is conducted and aims to inspire the next generation of public and global health researchers. During their 1-2 weeks at the School the students work in groups to design and conduct their own survey-based public health research project. Previous project titles have included: Does hand hygiene effect how often we get sick?, Does skin cancer knowledge influence sunscreen use? and Pain tolerance: How much can you take?.
The final day of April’s Programme on Friday 13 April concludes with a student seminar at which the Young Scientists Programme students will present their projects and results. Join us at lunchtime to celebrate the students’ work and to discover what they have been investigating.
