Health and Social Care students enjoy a variety of study activities

Health and Social Care students have been busy learning a variety of topics as part of their studies on the Level 3 BTEC Extended Diploma course.

In sessions forming part of their studies into anatomy and physiology the students dissected a lamb's heart and lungs and learnt how to take measurements such as blood pressure and heart rate readings. The students also experimented with a yeast and sugar mixture using bottles and balloons to mimic the creation of carbon dioxide as a result of respiration.

The first year students also enjoyed a field trip to the cinema to see 'Still Alice', a film about the early onset dementia and how it affects patients and their carers.

They also participated in an equality and diversity lesson where they learnt about the need to provide for all dietary requirements and had a go at making a variety of dishes such as chop suey, Thai green curry and pasta.
