Include up to 72 pupils per day

Demystify pandemic procedures by allowing participants to learn the medical science concepts and techniques used in real life. Pupils will be taught how to conduct antibody testing and blood testing when an outbreak occurs. Their simulated ELISA tests, exploring antibody-antigen reactions, determine who is infected. But participants must accurately apply the demonstrated techniques and determine how to best use the biotech multi-well tray to ensure minimal contamination and maximum reliability. Then, to treat those infected, participants must develop a convalescent blood treatment from people with immunity and ensure precise blood testing. To end the pandemic players must use their results to trace the point of origin and apply their scientific knowledge against time and under pressure. Which nation will cope best?

"Superb! Students were motivated and engaged throughout, showing team work and independence. The equipment used really hooked the students in and the presenting style and activities were engaging and really challenged the students, who clearly developed a number of skills. I can't recommend TiE enough!""
