TReND Alumni and Volunteers organised a hands-on outreach event at Maude International School, Zaria, Nigeria, to introduce teachers and students to simple and fun science experiments adoptable to the classroom. We are very excited that over 150 participants were reached during this event. They learned about making density columns, preparing and viewing light microscope slides and about how to measure electrical activity in muscles. We are thrilled by the overwhelming excitement triggered by the event. We are grateful to support from Biochemical Society, UK, Physiological Society UK and Dana Alliance for Brain Initiatives.
