Gillespie News: visitor and Science Cinema

Visitor from Francis Crick Institute

During the Lab 13 committee meeting we got a surprising visitor who came from the Francis crick institute for cancer research. She had heard about the Gillespie Lab 13 committee and told us, “We have heard wonderful things about what you do in Lab 13.” We also got told that she wanted to get younger students more involved in science like Lab 13 does. She asked us questions about why we wanted to be in the committee?, what ages we had to be in the committee?, whether our class experiments relate to our Lab 13 experiments? And Why we chose the Azifady charity in Madagascar to be our fundraiser?

Madagascan movie night

Louise, the lady who works for Azifady, will be coming to our school assembly on Monday morning next week. We are really looking forward to showing her what we are going to be doing for our movie night. A question that I would like to ask her is how did the idea come up that made you want to go to Madagascar?
