Streak Plates: A BioMed Story

This is a News story with a difference. It's about the reporter as much as it is about the story itself.

BioMed Club, which meets every second week, has a fast-growing reputation at Magna Academy as one of the coolest clubs for students to attend. Not only do they run some pretty groovy experiments, they are overseen by the fabulous Miss Poulton who, like her predecessor Mrs Fields, manages to deliver every one of the sessions with a very infectious kind of enthusiasm.

The Club met recently to conduct an exercise called Streak Plates, whose story you can read by clicking on this image:


But this Club session was a little different from others. For the very first time, a Magna student took on the responsibility of attending the experiment - camera and notebook in hand - to report on what took place so that you could take a peek inside for yourself.

The results of Nicole's work are what you see behind the clickable image above. Not only did Nicole take the great shots you see in the storyline, all the words you see are in her voice. She even composed the story in Adobe software and published it to the web for us. We are very proud of her efforts and we hope you like her reporting style.

Magna Academy is a part of the Aspirations Academies Trust, whose founder Dr Russell Quaglia is a passionate advocate of student voice. If you would like to know more about Dr Russ' beliefs on this subject, please click on the short video below which is a great introduction to Student Voice.
