Work Experience Day
20 February 2013
Yesterday, the Ear Institute welcomed 30 year 10 & 11 students from 3 London Schools. They took part in a workshop designed to get students interested in persuing a career in health sciences...
The school work experience was for Year 10 and 11 students from Paddington, Burlington Danes and Kings Dale schools and was part of a whole week of work experience run through a company called Excitec.
We introduced them to the new BSc Healthcare Science programs in Audiology, Cardiology and Neurophysiology in conjunction with our colleagues at Middlesex University who are running these courses in London.
There were many fun activities like
- recording how loud their mp3 players were using the ‘Sound Head’ form Action on Hearing Loss,
- making their own ear impressions using rubber ears,
- listening to sounds through hearing aids,
- measuring their blood pressure,
- recording EEGs and ECGs and understanding how they work,
- learning different balance tests and how the ear is related to balance etc.
They had quizzes and speed tests and were given prizes for the quickest people to complete a word search.
The feedback was generally very positive and we hope todo more Work Experience Days like this in the future!
