On the 13th September, Primary School Teachers from the neighbouring community gathered at The Centre for Regenerative Medicine. Thymistem supported the event that aimed to create links to topical and cutting edge science for the teachers. Thymistem scientists were on hand to provide tours of the facilities and their lab and Thymistem science communicator Cathy Southworth collaborated with Tom Pringle to provide activities that brought the scientific process into the Primary School classroom. The ongoing collaboration has also seen Thymistem support the local schools with additional copies of science books to allow extra schools to take part in the Royal Society Young People's Book Prize.
The Thymistem project has now ended, running for four years from 1/12/2013-31/9/2017
