Biology Talks to Inspire Young Scientists

03 October 2017 | College News, Science

Calling all budding biologists and inquisitive scientists, City College’s STEM Hub is welcoming young people and their parents to discover some of the exciting biology work taking place in and around Plymouth as part of Biology Week.

Now in its sixth year, Biology Week showcases the important and amazing world of biosciences, getting everyone from children to professional biologists involved in fun and interesting life science activities.

On Thursday 12 October two local biology linked companies will be giving talks in City College’s STEM Hub. Biovault, the UK’s largest human tissue bank, will touch on Cell Therapies: The Future of Medicine. They will talk about how and why Biovault collects human tissue and its potential medical benefits. The second company, Devon Wildlife Trust, will be discussing the Devon Beaver Project and how this native species is returning to our landscape, with exciting research now being conducted on their introduction.

“We are excited to welcome two great companies to talk to young people about the amazing work they undertake,” said Andy Robinson, STEM Hub Officer at the College. “Talks like this will hopefully inspire the younger generation to look at a career in the sciences and make them aware of the opportunities in science, technology, engineering and maths.”

The event is from 5.45pm to 8.00pm for children aged 11 and over and adults. To buy your ticket visit or for more information e-mail or call 01752 305050.
