Press invitation

Following on from the success of 2006, the 4th Annual Schools Science Conference, which takes place on 15th March, at Kensington Town Hall, celebrates healthy living and will show hundreds of students from North West London just how science saves lives. Featuring debates and prizes, an Olympic Medalist as guest speaker, interactive stands and suturing demonstrations, participants will also experience a day in the life of a sleep scientist and a pandemic and avian flu expert.

The conference continues to be one of the highlights of National Science and Engineering Week, and offers students a rare opportunity to talk to health professionals about options, training and the wide variety of careers available to them in the NHS. Dr Keith Ison, Chairman of the Federation for Healthcare Science and Head of Medical Physics at Guy’s and St Thomas’ hospitals will open the event and Alison Mowbray, Olympic Medalist will bring it to a close with a prize draw.

The organisers would like to thank London Development Agency, Capital Skills, Skills for Health, Royal Society of Chemistry (Aim Higher), Abbott Diagnostics, and The Advice Clinic for their sponsorship and Olympus for their donation of the competition prizes.
