Merck BioReliance

Race to Virus X

How safe are the medicines we take? How do we make sure that Virus X isn't lurking in our medicine? That's where our scientists at Merck come into action. In a race against time we test the DNA that lives in the medicines you take everyday and we ensure that they are safe and fit for purpose, helping to make you better. Ready, set, go - the race is on to identify Virus X!

Three Discovery Team

Stopmotion Movie Making - Bring some LEGO to life!

Using Ipads and the Stopmotion studio application we'll use our LEGO for children and families to make their own movies. Adding titles, credits and music will finish them off and can be sent to an email address or airdropped to any apple device!
