The Science of Zombies!

7 March 2011

Dr Anna Tanczos, from the Health and Medical Sciences faculty at The University of Surrey, gave a fascinating talk on The Science of Zombies to all Third Form, Lower Fourth and Upper Fourth students on Monday morning. The lecture looked at the science behind zombie myths and covered everything from the toxins present within Puffer Fish, frogs and toads to environmental microbiology, food safety, sleep studies, forensics and the modelling of drug interactions in the body.

Older students enjoyed an equally engaging Science lecture from Dr Tanczos in the afternoon, entitled The Chemistry of the Human Body. Students learnt about the importance of various elements in the human body, such as sodium, selenium, sulphur, phosphorus and iron.
