About the Summer School
During the summer school, we did a wide range of activities and research over the two weeks. We went on three trips during the two weeks as well.
During the first week, we met people like who are all from the LSHTM. We also went to the LSHTM itself where we were told the history of the school. In the school, we were also shown a wide range of things. We were shown things like the life cycle of the mosquito in reality etc.
During the first week, I also did research on Dust mites and Asthma with five other people who are also involved with the Summer School and we presented it to everyone else. At the end of the first week, we were all asked to choose which project we wanted to do. I decided to do Vaccination for Malaria.
The second week of the Summer School involved two more trips, one was to the adventure centre in Stubbers where we got to do Rock Climbing, Raft building, Challenge course and Kayaking.
During the second week, I started doing research for my chosen topic, which was Vaccination for Malaria. I did a little presentation on it to people in the Summer School before it went onto the LSHTM web page. At the end of the second week, we went to the Natural History Museum to end the Sumer School. The Summer School was fun and interesting
I'm working on a project about vaccination
