Competition for students to plan and star in their own careers interviews!
Future Morph (www.futuremorph.org) is asking students to develop their own interview where they will plan a set of 10 questions to ask their choice of healthcare or medical science staff. This competition is open to all students aged 11-16 years and the winning interview will be included in the Science Council's new ‘Beyond Medicine’ section on the Future Morph website.
‘Beyond Medicine’ will target young people considering studying medicine and will highlight the range and variety of job roles within the field of medicine, taking them beyond the idea of being a doctor. There are so many branches of medicine available but often young people are unaware of the options available to them. Students may want to combine their science and engineering skills as a medical engineer designing the next artificial limb, they may want to help babies overcome jaundice using medical physics, or they may want to work towards finding a cure for disease in a clinical trials setting, to name but a few.
The Science Council are hoping the competition will help them find out more about what young people want to know about careers within the field of healthcare and medical science. The deadline for entries is 7th October 2011 and more information can be found at: http://www.futuremorph.org/viewitem.cfm?cit_id=4995.
If you have any questions, or you're a STEM Ambassador who would be interested in being one of the interviewees (please note, spaces are limited), please contact Holly Margerison at the Science Council directly by email:H.Margerison@sciencecouncil.org or telephone: 020 7922 7881.
