Spread the Word
Today's challenge was to 'spread the word' about our host by creating an exciting new mascot with an important message. Throughout the day, the learners carried out lots of research, demonstrating their excellent Listening skills. The teams went on a tour and learned a little about the fantastic work being carried out on a daily basis by the different departments and their team members. Back in the room, it was time to get Problem Solving to research all the facts they could, before using their Creativity to come up with designs for a new mascot in order to promote positive messages. Later in the day, the students designed posters to showcase their new mascot and spread the word, before presenting their designs through exciting and informative news broadcasts.

The pupils' design
It has been great to see how the girls' presentations have developed. I can really see how they have grown in confidence.

I didn't know anything about Medical Illustration, it was really interesting and made me realise how many jobs there are in the NHS.

I really enjoyed today, the hospital wasn't what I expected, there is so much more to it.
