Big Bang North West: Lancaster University – Parasites in a Box!
Lancaster University will be showcasing their ‘Parasites in a Box’ activity which has been sent across the world to educate and raise awareness of parasites and disease.

‘Research in a Box’ boxes are either physical or virtual boxes consisting of loanable resources aimed at GCSE or A-Level school students that fit in with the appropriate curriculum and at the same time showcases resources used by LU researchers. The boxes aim to inspire teachers and future researchers, as well as aiding the transition of pupils from school to University.
