VACCINE providing fruit and tomatoes that help people to not get sunburnt were among the ideas by forward-thinking Year 10 students at Denison College Bathurst High Campus.

At Tuesday’s Biotech Expo, English and science students showed off projects that have been weeks in the making.

English teacher Luisa Simeonidis said students were tasked to develop a concept for a genetically modified organism (GMO) that could revolutionise the world.

“It’s the idea that this could probably happen one day and to think outside the square,” she said.

Students came up with their GMO concept in their science class and then learnt how to market that idea in their English class.

Alexa Browett and Chloe Caldwell displayed their ‘Lemon-Aid’ fruit idea which would deliver a vaccine to people in third world countries as the fruit was eaten.

Students were marked on a range of areas, and while the products are not real, Ms Simeonidis said the assignment encourages students to think big.
