- Living things and Habitats
- Working Scientifically
The team from the University of Bristol bring exciting kits and equipment to enable your students to gain an insight into a range of biomedical subject areas through interactive and hands on activities. And your pupils will get to meet and speak to real scientists, getting a sense of how what they are learning in the classroom relates to real-life biological processes and functions.
Roadshows cover all Biomedical subject areas including: physiology, neuroscience, psychology, cellular medicine and immunity, biochemistry, anatomy and biological sciences.
Usually between 45-60 mins in length, the Roadshows can be run in the classroom or assembly hall, depending on the chosen topic and student numbers.
