A pioneering £650million medical research centre has teamed up with a Camden secondary school to give pupils from across the borough the chance to learn from experts.
The Francis Crick Institute launched its educational partnership with Regent High School, in Somers Town, last week with a question-and-answer session with Nobel Prize winner Sir Tim Hunt and a panel of world-class scientists.
The school’s £25million new building will host the institute’s new discovery zone, where research scientists will put on scientific workshops, activities and lectures for Camden pupils from next month.
It is designed to engage pupils with science and maths, as well as inspiring them to embark on a scientific career.
The institute, a consortium of six of the UK’s most acclaimed scientific and academic organisations, is currently being built in St Pancras.

Dr Clare Davy, the institute’s education officer, said: “The event at Regent High School was a great success and the students had some insightful questions for our panel.”
