Medical Mavericks inspire our students!

19th December 2017


On Monday 18th December, we were delighted to welcome the awesome ‘Medical Mavericks’ team to Connell.


They are undoubtedly the UK’s No1 Careers, STEM & Sport Enrichment Experience!  Our students, along with some invited guests from the East Manchester Academy, gained inspiration from a carousel of hands-on activities such as taking blood from a fake arm (not for the squeamish!) recording and printing an ECG, looking inside the body using ultrasound and taking detailed pictures of the eyeball! The very bravest attempted keyhole surgery and amazed their peers with their manual dexterity and hand/eye coordination!


As well as informing the students about careers within the NHS that they may not even have known existed, the experience gave them a real insight into healthcare generally, and most importantly into maintaining their own health. It was certainly a worthwhile event which was well-received by all attendees.


A huge thank you to GM Higher for granting us this wonderful opportunity!
