Students Take Part In Murdoch University Outreach Program

Students Take Part In Murdoch University Outreach Program

Yesterday the Year 10 Brain Stem class visited Murdoch University as part of their Outreach Program. The class were fortunate to attend a presentation by a neuroscientist, Sarah Ellington. She outlined her career pathway in neuroscience and explained some of her research projects. Students had an opportunity to participate in a workshop demonstrating artificial stimulation of peripheral nerves and the effect on muscles. There was great excitement as hand muscles were activated!

The girls enjoyed a second presentation by another neuroscientist specialising in physiology and research surrounding electromagnetic therapy. Once again, students observed a demonstration of this technique which raised a range of great questions from the students.

Sincere thanks to the Murdoch University Outreach co-ordinators for organising this great experience for the students.
