Congratulations to Yasmin Ryan and Isabel Schmidt

Well done to Yasmin Ryan (Sixth Year) who received a full scholarship to attend a Laterna Mid-IB Summer course in the UK.
Congratulations also to Isabel Schmidt (Sixth Year) who was selected for third place at the European DNA Day Essay Contest 2019 of the European Society of Human Genetics. The names of all winners were announced in front of more than 3,500 international scientists and doctors attending the European Human Genetics Conference which took place in the Svenska Mässan in Gothenburg on 18 June. The winning essays of the DNA DAY 2019 are to be published online in the European Journal of Human Genetics (EJHG). Part of Isabel’s prize for the DNA essay competition was a €500 award to the supervising teacher to arrange an activity or buy supplies for the biology class. Mrs Rimbi has purchased the following: a hand microtome, a human kidney model, a cell membrane model, a human skeleton model and a USB document camera. These will be very useful to IB biology and to other classes.
