Mrs. Petra Kern came in to talk to the year 13 Biology students following their unit on Immunology.
Mrs Kern talked about her education and career in Science before focusing on her current role, assessing the risk of allergic responses to chemicals in household products.
Students were shown the pathway taken by allergens to produce an immune response and how levels of certain chemicals are controlled in products to prevent the risk of an allergic response.
It was really great for the students to see real world applications of the topics they are learning.
