The next generation of female scientists visited a working laboratory as part of their Rainbow badge work.
Young members of Girlguiding Dundee enjoyed a trip to Dundee University’s School of Life Sciences as part of efforts towards their “Medicine Maker” insignia.
The girls worked with university experts to learn about bacteria, disease and the role of women scientists to mark Unesco’s International Day of Women and Girls in Science.
The badge and activity pack have been developed by Dundee Guide leader and university undergraduate Jess Morris and a team of scientists led by medicinal chemist and Brownie leader Dr Fiona Bellany, of the university’s Wellcome Centre for Anti-Infectives Research (WCAIR).
Jess said: “Fiona gave a talk to the girls about her work as a scientist, and they were surprised to find out about Dundee’s world-leading role in medicine making.
“We decided we wanted to make sure that Girlguiding members could learn more about science in a fun way.”
