Almost 400 year 10 and 11 students came to our Medical Physics event. Each day included 14 hands-on Workshops run thanks to clinical scientists/other professionals from the QE and Selly Oak NHS hospitals, paramedics, equipment suppliers, Aston university and others. Prof Stuart Green gave an amazing key note talk highlighting how important Physics is in the delivery of 21st Century diagnostic techniques.
The students had a go at using defibulators, endoscopes, pulse oximeters, ultrasound, respiratory equipment, optical kit, radiation protection suits and X-rays to see through a Kinder surprise chocolate egg! A show of hands at the beginning and end of the day evidenced how many more were consider A-level Physics as a result of this action-packed day.
