“After leaving research to become a teacher I sometimes hanker after those moments of discovery at the cutting edge, but Authentic Biology allows me to rediscover these moments alongside young people. After a few years out of research you could feel de skilled and missing out on the latest progress but being involved in Authentic Biology, discussing our research with scientists in the field allows me to keep abreast of current thinking which makes me a better teacher.“
