Wellcome Trust Centre For Mitochondrial Research

Leading Edge

The Leading Edge project hopes to encourage young people to engage with science and consider it as a possible career, by encouraging school children to take part in the research that is occurring at Newcastle University. At the Wellcome Trust Centre for Mitochondrial Research, six year 9 students come into the group and undertook a lab based project. As well as the children spending time in the lab, they also participated in a variety of workshops.
