Sixth formers explore plant sciences at Cambridge

On 30th June, Plant Sciences welcomed 23 lower sixth students to the Teaching Lab as part of the Corpus Christi's Northern Ireland Experiencing Cambridge Summer School.  As well as hearing from John Carr and Elena Kazamia about the Natural Sciences Tripos and the wide range of opportunities open to science graduates they also tested plants for virus infection, examined algae through the microscope and observed aphids probing a leaf with the help of Francis Wamonje and his EPG machine.
