Rosalind Franklin costumed character
She may not have been awarded a Nobel Prize, but without the photograph taken by Rosalind Franklin, Crick and Watson would not have been able to construct their famous ‘Double Helix’ model of DNA.
Our actress portraying Rosalind Franklin will talk about her work in science and explain how important her work was in uncovering the structure of DNA - a breakthough that has revolutionised our understanding of biology and underpinned many major developments in medicine.
This lively encounter includes plenty of opportunity to ask questions, and the performance will be tailored to the age of your students.
Booking terms apply for this event.
Before or after this session your students can see the actual model of DNA built by Watson and Crick to demonstrate the structure of DNA to the world. displayed in the Making the Modern World gallery.
Meeting our Rosalind Franklin costumed character will support and enrich curriculum work about genetics, famous scientists, discoveries in science, How Science Works, health and Medicine through Time.
