Malham Tarn Field Studies Centre

Dr Alnuamaani reports on a recent trip for some of our budding scientists:

“Two weekends ago, a group of Year 10 and Year 12 students visited the Malham Tarn Field Studies Centre, accompanied by their science teachers and members of the University of Manchester’s faculty of Medicine, Biology and Health. On the Friday evening, staff from the university (epidemiologist, scientist, lab technician, PhD student, nurse, and a dentist), had a ‘speed dating event’ with the 45 students. During this event, the students gained a greater understanding about the opportunities the university can offer and about possible careers. On the Saturday,  students  took  part  in  several  field  work  activities  including identification of invertebrates in the river and calculating energy transfer in a real life food chain. In the evening, we had an inspirational talk from Professor Niroshini Nirmalan, who leads a team doing ground breaking research into Malaria, followed by a bonfire where we had time to reflect on all we had seen heard and done during the weekend. Sunday saw us walk across the limestone pavement to reach Malham cove before returning home.”
