Schools' Activity Timetables in the Science and Technology Village

Visit each School's stand to take part in engaging daily activities

North Wales Medical School and the School of Health Sciences

VR molecular modelling
The ability to model drug-protein interactions is essential for modern drug development. In this activity, virtual reality is used to immerse yourself into large protein structures.

Airway management
Using an airway management manikin, we demonstrate how patients can be assisted when they are struggling to breathe or are unconscious. 

Ultrasound - looking for veins and arteries
We use the Ultrasound to help us find your veins or arteries.  This will help us to take blood or insert a cannula.

VR molecular modelling
The ability to model drug-protein interactions is essential for modern drug development. In this activity, virtual reality is used to immerse yourself into large protein structures.

Virtual X-ray room
An opportunity to have fun and test your x-ray abilities in a fully simulated clinical environment, using technology that is used to train the next generation of Radiographers within the University.

Wound management
Using wound management equipment and artificial arms or skin wounds, we demonstrate how we clean, swab and dress different wound types.

VR anatomy
See how virtual reality is used to teach anatomy using interactive software; you can visualise and explore the skeletal system, muscles, vessels, nerves, and other organs in 3D.

Centre for Health Economics and Medicines Evaluation 
Higher or Lower? - Test your knowledge of the cost of NHS services.
How do we value peoples’ preferences for health and healthcare? - Come and find out in our research area. 

VR birth 
Come and use our fantastic new VR resource used to teach students on the midwifery programme. You will be transported straight to the delivery room to provide direct care to the woman and her partner during the birth. 

The boat budget challenge  
Join us to design and build a boat.  Will your boat float? Sail? Look good?  Learn about how we make healthcare decisions with the Boat Budget Challenge! 

Come and experiment with SimMom. Take part in a simulated activity based on midwifery care, recording vital life signs, listening to the foetal heartbeat and providing general care to SimMom.

Have fun communicating
Nurses use all kinds of ways to communicate effectively. Join in the fun, signing, Makaton, codebreaking, communication bingo and more!

Identify the bones
Can you name the bones? Where would you find these in the body? 

Henrietta Lacks (HeLa) cells
The ability to grow human cells in a laboratory is essential for medical research. Discover the story of Henrietta Lacks and view her cells through a microscope.

Pin the organ
Can you identify the organs? Can you place the organs in the correct position on the body? 

Anatomical models
Explore the anatomical models, can you name any of the parts?

School of Computer Science and Engineering 

Use your coding skills to solve the Minecraft challenge! We'll be giving away prizes twice-daily!

Step into the shoes of a secret agent and use your problem-solving skills to escape a sticky situation!

Visit the Children's Tent at the Science and Technology Village at 11am every day, to take part in our 30-minute Code Breakers challenge!
Can you crack it? Use your code breaking and problem-solving skills to open the box before your time runs out.

School of Psychology, Sport and Exercise Sciences 

Test your hand and eye co-ordination in our reaction time test.

Batak can be used to improve reaction time, train stamina and fitness levels and improve spatial awareness. It is used in many areas of professional and high-performance sports including F1, rugby, football, tennis and by the Ministry of Defence.

Find out more about the Remote Instruction of Language and Literacy (RILL) project, a Language and Literacy programme developed by Bangor University researchers to assess the language and literacy of key stage 2 children.

Discover how our robot is helping us understand how the ability to control external objects develops through childhood. The robot tests our ability to hit targets rapidly and accurately using different-shaped tools. This probes whether the brain ‘understands’ how the tool tip moves in relation to the body. Our findings will inform the development of better devices, in particular prosthetic hands for children.

Find out how we can use the Stroop test to measure a person's selective attention capacity and skills, processing speed, and alongside other tests to evaluate overall executive processing abilities.

Try your hand at solving the Tower of Hanoi puzzle. The Tower of Hanoi is often used in psychological research on problem solving, for example to study developmental progression in children and young people.
