BioGrad: School trips to Liverpool Science Park (KS4 & KS5)

Biograd are launching a fantastic selection of School STEM trips to Liverpool Science Park. Take a look at the fun, interesting and exciting options below.


What do scientists REALLY do all day?

• KS4 and KS5 school trip that introduces students to the vast range of science careers
• Students learn about the different science and medical degree options including information on the jobs available at the end. Students will also visit the respiratory examination centre, molecular biology laboratory, infectious disease laboratory and sports science examination suite at Liverpool Science Park to meet different scientists and learn more about each area of research. (A visit to the nano medicine laboratory can also be added, depending upon time and date of tour)
• Groups of 20 – 63 students accepted
• £995 per group (regardless of student numbers)
• 2 hour visit to Liverpool Science Park, tour of BioGrad’s clinical training centre & laboratories

• Schools may wish to link this trip with a visit to one of the many museums in Liverpool city centre for ‘added value’ with no additional cost.

Spy School

• KS4 school trip (Science and Criminology)
• Working in small groups, students will be provided with a range of case files containing all the information required (including times and locations of suspects rendezvous) to set them on their path to solving their crimes! Students (and teachers) will travel on foot to different locations in Liverpool city centre to collect evidence, observe crimes and even interview witnesses before returning to the laboratory to perform their analysis.

Entrepreneurship in science – the business of medical research

• KS4 & KS5 school trip that introduces students to the ‘business of science’
• Students will learn about the ‘big business’ of medical research and drug discovery, including how changes in the global economy are affecting investment and scientific research in the UK. After this students will be given a tour of the research laboratories at Liverpool Science Park, learning about the economic cost of research. Students then work together in small groups to pitch a scientific device/drug in the ‘Dragons Den’ and will invest their money in one medical research project before learning the outcome of their investments (using ‘real world’ examples). Some investments will return billions of pounds, whilst others will lose everything!
