Medical Government/ NHS related news

A series of workshops is being run by Public Health England this week to help encourage schoolchildren to take an interest in science-based careers.

Running from March 9th to 18th, British Science Week is taking place for the 24th year in 2018, and encourages organisations, science professionals, communicators and the general public to hold events to get people involved in scientific activities.

“Public Health England is running a series of workshops across the country to help inspire children to take up a career in science.“

To support this, around 1,800 pupils from ten schools across England are being given the opportunity to take part in interactive science workshops hosted by Public Health England, covering topics from DNA extraction to health science and air pollution.

A group of 25 scientists will lead these workshops, lending their expertise in toxicology, microbiology, environmental public health, microscopy, vaccine research and epidemiology.

Duncan Selbie, chief executive of Public Health England, said: "It's important that the current generation of scientists informs and inspires the next generation, and shows young people the range of routes and opportunities they can pursue within world-leading UK science."
