To start British Science Week off in Y6, Iwan and Emily from Sheffield University came to tell us about their work in the field of biomedical research. They explained to us how studying fish and flies is helping people to develop medical techniques for humans! They brought in fish and flies for us to look at and taught us about how their genes are very similar to those of a human. We used basic gene codes to draw mutant fish and flies. Some of our creations are below.
