The Aston masterclass programme is a great opportunity for IB1 -2, Year 12-13 and Level 3 students to enrich their current studies and to discover more about studying a particular subject at university. Masterclasses are stimulating workshops delivered by Aston University academics who are at the forefront of their subject area.

Date: Wednesday 1 March

Details: Millions of years ago, algae cleaned up the earth’s atmosphere turning the earth’s then inhospitable atmosphere into one that could support modern life through photosynthesis. Accordingly, algae which originally led to the creation of the Earth’s current atmospheric composition and allowed for life as we know it. This masterclass provides an excellent opportunity for students to discover the importance of algae in our daily life and its relevance to solving problems such as environment pollution, the energy crisis and food security. Students will learn how to grow and use algae as a feedstock to produce energy, fertiliser and other high value compounds.
