SERC set to inspire at Science Festival

AT WORK: Get set for science at SERC

SCIENCE students at South Eastern Regional College are getting set to welcome budding young scientist to their Bangor, Downpatrick and Lisburn campuses as part of NI Science Festival.

Karen Orme, Deputy Head of School of Applied Science at SERC, said: “We will be welcoming local school children into the college to design and build rockets in Infinity and Beyond; take on the role of epidemiologists and learn how infections spread in Patient Zero; learn how to recognise animal facial expressions and body language in Pawsitive Behaviour and get hands on experience in the use of a bioindicator index to grade water samples with moderate to severe pollution in What Lurks Beneath?”

She added: “Science is part of everyday life, it is all around us, and many of the sessions we are showcasing at the college are topical news stories.

“We’re keen to inspire young people to get involved, ask questions and be amazed at all science has to offer as well as showing them the amazing facilities we have at SERC to get their science career started.”

The NI Science Festival runs from February
