13th Annual Schools Science Conference, London, 20 April 2016
The 13th Annual Schools Science Conference: Science for Your Future was held at the University of Westminster, 115 New Cavendish St, London W1W 6UW.
The conference was for students in school years 9 - 11 and aimed to:
- Inspire studying science
- Demonstrate the importance of science in health and everyday life
- Showcase the exciting and rewarding careers open to those who study science
The day had sessions of interactive hands-on stands, workshops, lectures and presentations by the students. Most of the content was relevant to the school curriculum and the students could learn about the various routes of entry into different science careers.
Together, the Jenner Institute and Oxford Vaccine Group (OVG) held an interactive stand on various vaccinology concepts. We had good discussions with the attending students and teachers and ran a survey on the student attitudes to vaccines.
