Pharmabees team up with Cardiff Council
17 July 2020
The award-winning Pharmabees project combines cutting edge research with community engagement by exploring how certain native Welsh plants could lead to the development of drugs to treat serious medical conditions now resistant to traditional antibiotics - otherwise known as 'superbugs'.
Educational resources have been made available to primary schools across Cardiff in partnership with Cardiff council. This is part of Cardiff University’s effort to support the new curriculum, pollinate young minds and create the next generation of university students.
Resources on this site are developed through innovative projects involving the Cardiff Council e-learning team, teachers from Cardiff schools, local businesses and Cardiff and Swansea Universities. All resources are aligned with both the current science and computer science curricula, as well as with the forthcoming Science & Technology AoLE (Area of Learning Experience) in the new Curriculum for Wales. They also link with the Digital Competence Framework and the Literacy and Numeracy Framework. The overall aim of the resources is to demonstrate a clear relationship between elements of the curriculum and real-world experiences and job opportunities.
On the site users will find various educational resources from Pharmabees including biodiversity activities, bacteria experiments, and other online resources to support classroom learning.
