The Swansea Science Festival Family Weekend took place at the Waterfront Museum, Swansea, over the weekend of the 3rd and 4th November. On Sunday the 4th, Dr Claire Price and Dr Josie Parker from the Centre of Cytochrome P450 Biodiversity, Mr Mark Williams from ILS stores and Applied Medical Science student, Theo DeRancourt showcased the power and versatility of yeast. The stand was very busy, and attendees were astonished that dried yeast used to make something as common placed as bread could be used to make a foam fountain/elephant’s toothpaste! Much fun was had, and a huge mess was made!
