Discovery STEM Education
Discovery STEM Education is a not for profit organisation with a mission to inspire and support the next generation of scientists, technologists, engineers and mathematicians. This is achieved through a variety of projects including the Surgical Skills Day.
Surgical Skills Day

Students gain a realistic understanding of the level of accuracy and concentration required in open surgery through a number of operative exercises including:
- Surgical knot-tying and instrument handling.
Delivered by a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. Each student will construct a photographic portfolio of their work and receive a certificate.
