These are some excerpts from letters that our Unit Director received from Brooke Priory School pupils thanking her and the Unit Research Staff for the fantastic day they had in the Unit in February 2011.
"I think the thing I enjoyed most was making the DNA in the labs and I want to say thank you to Thomas, the scientist that helped me, for being so exciting and for making it so fun. It was fascinating when we did the dry ice experiment and I really enjoyed it".
"I especially enjoyed separating the DNA from the cell debris and seeing the two different parts so clearly. I was fascinated by how much the DNA moved when we attached an electrical current to it. When we saw the DNA under ultra violet rays it was awesome to see the path of DNA".
" My favourite part of the trip was definitely making the plasmid DNA. I loved using the pippetes and it was really fun and interesting"!
