Visits to Schools and Colleges by PHRMY staff and Researchers
Whitchurch Primary School
Dr Emma Kidd and Dr Rhian Thomas did 2 back-to- back assemblies in Whitchurch Primary School as part of the Brain Games initiative. The people behind the Brain Games have committed to doing an assembly in all the 91 primary schools in Cardiff by the end of this academic year. The children are given a book at the end so that they can find out more about their brain. The children learnt about some of the things their brains can do and they and their teachers took part in various interactive activities. October 2013.

Through a series of hands-on experiments, young pupils were led through concepts such as forces, pH, solubility, and blood circulation, as they pertain to medicines, see below. We also have a collection of 'thank you' letters from the pupils over the years.
