Workshop for Waltham Forest Virtual School

The MetaboLight team was thrilled to be part of an experience programme organized by UCL and Waltham Forest Virtual School to introduce higher education to children in care! The whole workshop lasted for 2.5 hours, starting with students playing around a “science circus”, where they could rotate around different stands and learn how light interacts with the outer environment. Then students had a hands-on experience in building their own electronic circuits through learning basic circuitry. They were remarkable and were able to build all circuits by themselves!


Finally, students had a chance to see their brain scan, and were really excited to see each others’ scans! Overall, we enjoyed the session very much! We were even happier when helpers from the virtual school said that our session was the highlight of the 2-day summer school. We hope to help out in more of these activities in the future!
