School Girls Make Science History!


Friday 13th  is unlucky for some, but last week schoolgirls participating in “Skirting Science” (an event to encourage girls to study science) made science history during an exciting interactive workshop run by researchers from Cardiff University. 

The research group, headed by Dr Marc Pearton, has been developing a method for delivering pain free vaccination with needles that are so small they can only be seen with a microscope. The school girls succeeded in producing the micro-needles using the new techniques developed at the University of Cardiff.  Dr Pearton said “This is the first time, anywhere in the world, that these micro-needles have been manufactured outside of a research lab!”
