Lab in a Box is a mobile science laboratory, built in a 20 foot shipping container. It comes fully equipped with both science “gear” and people. Researchers and students from around New Zealand (or indeed around the World) are involved in this fantast
We have recently had Dr Andrew Bahn and Associate Professor Rajesh Katare go to different destinations to promote science as part of the Lab in a Box programme.
Dr Bahn went to Timaru from 16-17 March and ran a kidney lab with the students. Assoc Prof Katare went to Rakaia on 24 March and introduced the students to cardiac physiology by measuring heart rate and blood pressure.
We have had great feedback from the teachers and the students. See some photos and comments on our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/physiologyotago
