A group of Y8 students went to Newcastle University Robinson Library where they were able to access some unique original documents about Cholera in Gateshead in the Nineteenth Century.
Next students went to the Catherine Cookson Building to use the labs where they trialled different treatments of cholera from the original resources through to the modern day.
Student responses to the visit – amazing, awesome, exciting, fun, enjoyable, scientific, fascinating, tiring, cool – the list is endless.
