Scientific discovery and champagne cocktails

Science Uncovered bannerThe Natural History Museum hosts another Science Uncovered event next Friday, 28 September; this one is bigger and better than before!

For the first time, the RCVS Charitable Trust will have their own veterinary station so we invite you to literally feel your way with the latest in medical simulation. 

We’ll have veterinary students and members of our staff on hand to assist you with our haptic devices.  Haptic devices allow vets and doctors in training to develop essential clinical skills by using advanced computer touch simulators to practise without harming patients.

So come along and see if you can make a safe injection and to hone your palpation skills. You can also try your hand at wound bandaging on our toy animals.

There will also be an opportunity to get to know some of the museum’s star specimens over a glass of wine, to talk to scientists whose work illuminates the story of life and to walk the path of the first Homo sapiens. Not your average Friday night out, by any means!

We’ll be Tweeting live from the event so please follow #NHMVets for all the updates
