Dr Turi King Visits Soar Valley College

Soar Valley hosted the very talented Scientist Turi King. Turi King if famous for her DNA analysis on Richard III to confirm his identity. Turi is the winner of the East Midlands Outstanding Woman in STEM award and it was an honour to have Turi talk about her work to schools from all over the city. Turi ran a workshop for our Year 10 students on DNA extraction and was truly inspirational for staff and students at Soar Valley. This was a city wide event which appeared on BBC East Midlands Today and was a very proud moment for the students in the city to meet Turi King in person
