Three researchers from Ludwig Oxford ran a science workshop for pupils aged 9-11 at St Mary Abbots Primary School. Tammie Bishop, Olivia Lombardi and Virginia Schmid taught the children about DNA biology, mutations and inheritance. The workshop was very successful with one teacher reporting that it was the ‘talk of the town amongst the children at lunch break afterwards’.
