Philip Harris, leading educational science supplier took over Kew Gardens for the day to host a fantastic training event open to all school laboratory technicians across the UK. The event was jointly run by Philip Harris’s team of science specialists and experts from Kew Gardens, and attracted over 130 technicians. The day encourages technicians to network, learn about all the latest innovations in the world of science and enjoy themselves in the lovely surroundings of Kew Gardens.
The first session of the day explored Philip Harris’s latest innovation to the marketplace, their Datalogger “Acquire”; followed by sessions such as Physics for the Frightened; Tissue culture techniques made foolproof and a Palm House rainforest tour.
The feedback from the day was extremely positive; one technician commented “Just a quick note to say how good the course at Kew was! Very enthusiastic and knowledgeable group leaders and course tutors. An excellent day.” (Heather Oehl Science Technician, Invicta Grammar School, Maidstone, Kent)
