This is how we put the inspiration in! – FAQs

Grace & Group

What kind of kit do you bring in?

It’s more of a case of what don’t we bring! Here’s some of our most popular workshop activities:

See inside the body with an ultrasound machine

Record and print an ECG from your heart

Take a picture of the inside of your eye on an iPhone

Try key hole surgery on practice kit used by surgeons

Use a real needle to take blood from a fake arm

Try suturing on fake skin

iPhone with retina image wide

What subjects do you cover?

Our speciality is Careers, but there are loads of links to Science, Health & Social Care, Maths, Engineering and Technology… oh wait… that’s STEM! 

We can link into specific curriculum specs too! Just let us know what exam board and units you want us to cover and we’ll do the rest.

Which students can take part?

We have workshops for all types of student. From years 7 to 13, to Gifted & Talented to aspiring medics and those that just love science. Even if they aren’t into science, we can guarantee they will get something from the session. I mean, who doesn’t want to see the inside of their eye ball, scan their liver with an ultrasound and try their hand at key hole surgery!

Do you focus on Doctors, Surgeons & Nurses as careers?

No, no, no, no… We focus on all sorts of medical careers, especially those that require grades A-C or 9-4, which makes them really accessible to so many students. Including those that don’t think they are good enough for a medical career or may not have even considered them before.

Check out our Careers Wall below that we bring in to the workshops!

Do you offer a guarantee?

Promise Screen Grab

We sure do. We know budgets are precious things in education and inviting an external organisation in can be a bit of a risk if you have never met them before. So, to give you and the decision makers peace of mind, all our workshops are covered by the Medical Mavericks Promise. 

If you don’t think we have inspired or engaged your students during your workshops, your booking is completely free. 

AND… we will come back to try again after taking on your feedback and deliver another day totally free as well.

No other education provider offers a guarantee like this!
