Ana, Mariana, and Madalena. Three of our IGCSE students attended this years ‘Jonk Fuerscher’ competition and impressed the public and jury with their work about probiotics. They used fruit flies to understand whether consuming products that contain probiotics on a daily basis is really beneficial to the immune response and thus the general health. The three can now look forward to a trip to the London International Youth Science Forum (http://www.liysf.org.uk/) in August. A phenomenal event where over 350 young adults from over 50 countries will meet and get a glimpse into university life and the life of a researcher. They will visit different universities, research centres, companies, attend lectures by world renowned scientists and so much more.
