Healthcare science ambassador in career advisor role, The Big Bang Fair UK Young Scientists and Engineer Fair
Sandra Richards, biomedical scientist and healthcare science ambassador will be attending The Big Bang Fair this year as a careers advisor. Using a 'speed dating' approach, students and their families will be given two minutes to ask Sandra questions about a career in healthcare science. Last year Sandra took various healthcare science equipment to the fair and found herself with a bottle-neck of students who didn't want to move onto the next table! Sandra hopes to help children understand that there are various careers in healthcare science and that its open to everyone.
