Health Research for Schools

We have completed projects with Year 6 pupils at two schools in Leicester city.

Our projects began with a 30-minute assembly which comprised an overview and a play about health research. Staff from the Department of Health Sciences then attended 5-hour long sessions in which the children defined their health research question, designed their data collection tool, collected data, graphed the data, drew conclusions and made recommendations on what they had learnt. The children prepared scientific posters on their work with clear introduction, methods, results and discussion sections.
