STEM Project, Session 2

Session 2 Reviews

Yesterday, we had a visit from the Medical Mavericks Healthcare Workshop. It was lots of fun and very interesting. We learnt how to use different medical equipment like a keyhole surgery machine, glasses and goggles that show you what it would be like to have different eye diseases and being drunk. We also did things like trying an ageing suit, taking blood from a fake arm, peak flow measurements and other interesting things. Overall it was a great experience. By Phoebe

 

I loved it very much! We did many fun and interesting activities which educated us on Science related jobs. My favourite was when we looked through and x-ray to see if we are still going to grow.  By Ambica

 

The STEM session yesterday was really good. It was an amazing experience and I really loved it. My favourite parts were taking blood out of a fake arm, trying keyhole surgery and the drunk glasses. I don’t think I ever want to get drunk!! The funniest part was trying to find my reflexes because it wasn’t working at first and it took a while to find it. We looked into the retina of my eye and found that I have very good eyesight.   By Nicosia

 

I enjoyed myself. 10 out 10. I will do it again. By Kai
