British Science Week competition

BayLab Lab Coat competition Zoom image

As part of British Science Week 9- 18 March 2018, Bayer is launching their first lab coat competition. Baylab is giving schools the chance to win a set of lab coats for their science classes.

To be in with a chance of winning, all students need to do is design a lab coat that illustrates what science means to them. This could be illustrations of their favourite science topics, science that affects life on our planet or anything else that makes you think of science and the bigger picture. The more creative, the better!
