Students visit Shenzhen Bay Lab
On Monday this week, students from MIS set out on their first Science-related field trip of the year. After many of them completed wonderful projects for Science Week, it was time they caught a glimpse of how research is conducted in professional laboratories.
Incidentally, staff from Shenzhen Bay Laboratories helped to judge last year's Science Fair and provided science internships for many of our students over the summer, so there was no one better to host us! The students began by taking a tour through the lives of the scientists and the training they had to undergo to get to the positions they are in today.
They then received a lecture on neuroscience, specifically how neuroscientists study the brain. Finally, they witnessed the animal lab, which is where most of the neuroscience experiments take place. Shenzhen Bay Laboratories is part of Shenzhen government's Science Park project in Guangming, and the site did not disappoint, housing the most up-to-date and advanced scientific equipment and resources.
We thank the wonderful scientists and staff at SZBL for hosting us, and we are excited for our next offsite adventure!
