On Monday 29th April, Medical Mavericks returned to Airedale Academy to thrill students in Year 9 and Year 10 with a range of medical-related tests. The sessions were designed to give students an insight into the different medical careers that are available post-16. As well as completing the tests, students had to find out which medical professional used each piece of equipment they were using. Students had the opportunity to carry out tests on themselves such as ascertaining their blood pressure, temperature and locating blood vessels with a vein scanner.
Students also had the chance to have an ECG and take a picture of the back of their eye.
A favourite test of the day included using the ultrasound scanner to locate growth plates to see if our students would grow any taller!
Thank you to the Medical Mavericks for an amazing day and a great insight into the different carers available within the NHS.
