Easter Bush Science Outreach Centre

Secondary Schools

Our Secondary school workshops are all curriculum-linked, interactive and reveal the real-life science being done at the Roslin Institute, Royal (Dick) School of Veterinary Studies and across the University of Edinburgh. All of our workshops are supported by our researchers, postgraduate students and scientific staff, giving your pupils the opportunity to find out more about studying and working in science.

DNA & the Genome | PCR Masterclass: A Question of Taste

A full day, hands-on polymerase chain reaction (PCR) masterclass. Using their own DNA, students will discover and compare their version of a bitter taste receptor gene (genotype) with their ability to taste the bitter compound (phenotype). Includes a unique opportunity to meet and work with our scientists.
