Hands on workshop where you can take blood, record and print an ECG, try keyhole surgery, see inside your body with an ultrasound machine and take a picture of the inside of your eye! Introduce your students to dozens of careers available in the NHS.

What’s in the workshop

This workshop is a great introduction to medical and health careers. Your pupils will be able to get hands on with real medical kit in the classroom, including: taking blood from fake arm, recording an ECG from their heart, see their bones and muscles with an ultrasound machine, take a picture of the inside of their eye with an iPhone, take basic medical observations, test their lungs with a peak flow and experience different eye diseases with the pathology goggles!

They all get a workbook to record their results in as well as a print out of their very own ECG to take home and stick on the fridge!

Who is it for and how does it work?

The workshop can be tailored for any year group from years 4,5 & 6 in primary, all the way through to year 13 in secondary. We can visit for the day and repeat the workshops 4-6 times over the day. Each workshop is 50-70 minutes long and all we need is a good sized classroom with access to tables and a few plug sockets. The workshop has a 15-20 minute intro from the MM team before the students get the rest of the session to experience using the kit! It is all hands on!

Every student receives a 4 page workbook where they can record results and check off activities. Each activity has 2-4 different careers linked to them. The careers are colour coded too, so they can see which grades they need at GCSE! Students can also pick up a mini poster that gives an overview of 13 different sectors in the NHS!

What our teachers say…

Both students and staff really enjoyed the day. Quang brought along lots of medical equipment for them to try and it has certainly inspired a few to think about a medical career. Really engaging and good value.

Tina Belcher

Amazing interactive experience for the students, it got them really engaged and helped some decide on a possible future career. The staff were amazing and so enthusiastic! Will definitely be booking again.

Michelle Hackett

Brilliant hands on session. Our students were so enganged by the equipment and medical Mavericks staff that we couldn’t get them to leave (even though the event was held after school on a Friday!)
