A creative and fun workshop about the intestine and how INTENS aims to re-construct it using stem cells has been developed by University of Edinburgh student Eleanor Mocatta.
Her 3-month long project saw her working with INTENS science engagement manager, Dr Cathy Southworth, and INTENS researchers to conceive and test a school workshop for students aged 9-14. The workshop was designed to communicate the research in a fun, engaging, and interactive manner to young people and teachers.
To date, 25 workshops have been delivered to young people between 9 and 14. The workshop materials are ready to be delivered by other scientists to disseminate the project activities more widely.
