Med Soc Trip




On 14 March, seven MedSoc members from DG/Year 12 visited Elekta in Crawley, a global healthcare company and manufacturer of radiotherapy equipment, for a STEM workshop to learn all about radiography. The action-packed day started with a talk from members of the Society of Radiographers who told them all about the profession and career options. They learned about the Linac Accelerators and how they work, got to see them up close and even got a chance to try their hand at presenting and producing in their broadcast studio! After a tasty lunch, they spent the afternoon in an interactive workshop where they got to design their own patient treatment systems before presenting their ideas to a panel of judges. It was a fascinating and inspiring event that the pupils really enjoyed.
