Mavericks Medics Science Workshop
Mavericks Medics is a Science workshop who worked with our Year 6 children, giving them real life experience based on their work on the body. A specialist team worked with the children and provided first-hand experience and children carried out a range of scientific activities.
During the workshop, pupils were able to:
– Record and print an ECG from your heart
– See inside your eye with a specially adapted iPhone
– See inside their body with an Ultrasound machine
– See how much air you can fit inside your lungs with a spirometer
– Use a real needle to take fake blood out of an arm (a fake arm)
– Explore Colin the Colon with an Endoscope camera
– Fit an airway into Eddy the Head
– Take a set of medical observations including blood pressure, temperature and oxygen levels
– Experience different eye diseases with our special pathology goggles
– Try Key Hole Surgery!
The day was a great success and both adults and children learnt scientific knowledge about the way the human body works.
