Surviving the apocalypse STEMClub Sessions
For the past few years the world has been ravaged by a vicious disease…not the one you might be thinking of…this one is much worse! This new disease, known as HAVOC, has infected millions of people, making them develop strange behaviours, including a tendency to be a little bit bitey!
A small band of elite scientists, codenamed STEMClub, i.e. you, have survived the initial apocalypse and escaped to a secret laboratory in the woods outside Cambridge. Unfortunately the lab has not been used for a while, and you had to escape quickly, so there are not as many essential provisions in your hide-out as you might want.
Can you work together to complete challenges to demonstrate your resilience, creativity and scientific skills and help others to survive the apocalypse?
Today we will be looking at:
Nature’s Parasites – taking over a host
There are parasites that invade other species and have the ability to change the behaviour of the host creature. Could one of these explain the effects of HAVOC? Explore some of these strange and sometimes deadly natural parasites.
