During this week-long workshop, 16-17 year old pre-A or A-level students carried out experiments in the lab with a pre-determined aim. This year, to help demonstrate the development of the Drosophila cell cycle, the students (2 English and 2 Japanese) were tasked to dissect, stain and analyse Drosophila brains as well as stain and analyse cultured Drosophila cells.

Kimata Lab members enjoyed their tutoring roles, and the school students found the experience in a lab exciting. The programme ended with an excellent presentation by the students, and a formal dinner at Trinity College.
