On Thursday 15th March we were lucky enough to be visited by Tamsin Jordan and Chloe Emmerson from Scientifica, an Uckfield company that specialises in developing premium scientific equipment to enhance the research of neurons, neuronal circuits and animal behaviour. Tamsin gave a wonderfully interesting talk to our Yr 10 Triple Science students in order to promote Brain Awareness Week. The talk was based primarily on questions that the students had sent in regarding brain function, disorders and discovery of function.
