Science - Focused on pharmacy
The Robert Gordon University is offering a free workshop to senior secondary school pupils across Scotland next Tuesday.
The aim of this taster session, and an earlier one held this week, is to provide pupils with an opportunity to decide whether studying at the university's School of Pharmacy and Life Sciences is for them.
Next week's workshop, "A Day in the Life of a Forensics Science Student", will include a lecture on "How to Investigate a Crime Scene", as well as a practical exercise in which pupils will be fully kitted out as crime scene investigators making their own findings in the university's state-of-the- art mock crime scene facility.
This week's workshop, "The Medicine Journey, Pharmacy Focus", gave pupils an insight into the hands-on skills required to become a pharmacist. They discovered the process of putting an eye gel in the marketplace, from its manufacture to the point of administration to the patient. They were also given hands-on experience of patient-monitoring and the opportunity to practise the basic principles of medicines-management, as well as finding out about the varied career paths open to pharmacists.
There is no charge for the event. Places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.
