Bacteria Compass
21 Mar 2012;
Experiment show how magnetic nanoparticles can influence and control the orientation of E.coli bacteria. The bacteria used were genetically engineered with a red fluorescent expression construct to help visualise the influence of the particles.

Introduction to Resistors
26 Nov 2006;
Colour codes on the resistors indicate resistance values. We measured each of the resistors working out measurements using tables specifying the resistor colour codes and checking the measurements using a multi-meter.

GLOWING BACTERIA
30 Jan 2006;
The glowing bacteria experiment involved the transfer of the luminescent gene from firefly gene to the bacteria. A chemical substrate was used to activate the bioluminescent light to make the bacteria glow.

ROSE IN MARTIAN GREENHOUSE
06 Jul 2005;
This activity involved the creation of a simulated Martian greenhouse for a rose. A rose cutting was planted into this micro-ecosystem and was carefully monitored.

DNA EXTRACTION
08 Oct 2004;
A rougher method of isolating DNA (and RNA) from an onion where its tissues were broken up mechanically and household detergent was used to degrade the cell and its membranes.

TISSUE CULTURING
01 Mar 2004;
The tissue culture experiment aims were to produce plants from small amounts of plant tissue where they grew in aseptic conditions in jars containing nutrient solution.

PLAYING WITH BACTERIA
01 Feb 2002;
This involved preparing bottled (and powdered) agar for cultures, transferring cultures, observations under the microscope, gram staining them and caring for live cultures.
