An international Steering Committee chose two projects from Loreto College to represent the ‘ UK Innovation in Science Teaching’ category in the Science on Stage Europe Festival during 17-20th June at Queen Mary’s University, London.

This provides a European platform for the most creative and innovative talents in primary and secondary STEM (science, technology, engineering and maths) education across Europe. At these four-day events over three hundred and fifty teachers come together to present new and exciting ideas, chosen through competitive national events for their passion and vision in transforming science education. Surita Lawes presented her project, `Loreto Labs Investigates’, a collaboration between Loreto and the Developmental Biology department at Manchester University, investigating environmental factors affecting gene expression in chicken embryos. Yasmin Andrew presented on ‘Plasma Physics in Post-16 Education’ which involved a collaboration with Salford University.
