Introducing the Science Skills Academy
Wed 3 May 2017, 18:30 – 19:30 BST
Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Digital creativity (STEMD) will underpin the Highland economy in the future. The Science Skills Academy has just secured £3M from the Inverness and Highland City-Region deal to inspire the next generation about STEMD. Come along and hear more about it and what is planned. Also – It’s commonly said that humans share 98% of their genes with chimpanzees. It’s less well known that we share 50% of our genes with bananas. As part of this session and to give an example of the type of science activity that goes on in schools these days, we will extract some genetic material (DNA) from fruit.
