FAQs.

Are you any good?

Definitely, but don’t just take our word for it.

Check out our testimonials from schools and organisations that have used us to inspire their students and visitors.

You can also see reviews on our Facebook Page and Google Reviews.

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!

OR….

We can also do whole year group science shows if that is your thing.

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

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!
