Researchers at the University of Aberdeen used the Start-Up Science Masterclasses to work with S1 and S2 students to conduct science experiments with them.
- 12 November– Interactive Clinical Skills: Students were introduced to Mr K, their simulator, to develop key clinical skills needed by those in the medical profession; from communication and examination to procedural processes.
- 19 November – Interactive Trauma: Using the latest state-of-the art technology (Sim-Man) this Masterclass demonstrated how doctors in training are put through their paces in trauma management.
- 26 November – Medical Science and Medical Imaging: Medical Sciences can be used in many different ways. This class demonstrated how they could be be applied in the discipline of forensic science to identify criminals. Students were able to identify a murderer using evidence found in a mocked-up crime scene.
The Start-up Science Masterclasses are run in partnership with, and took place at, the University of Aberdeen. The Masterclasses are intended to give young people who have shown an interest in science and technology the opportunity to broaden their knowledge and experience. The classes promote widening participation and provide the students with a unique insight into academic life and research.
