STEM event 2016: Bringing plant science to life!

On Monday 29th February Norton Canes science department was joined by STEM ambassador Chris Till from the University of Nottingham. Students were given an insight into the wealth of careers in plant science alongside Chris’ pioneering research into growing plants in low nitrogen soils as a method of ensuring global food security. Students really enjoyed the session and all commented that it had helped to change their opinion on the importance of studying plants!
