Victorian Medicine

Key Stage 2

At Techniquest

This show is not for the faint-hearted!

Your pupils will find out that 100 years ago:

  • A cut could kill you
  • A cough could mean death
  • A shy Frenchman first listened to a heartbeat
  • The fastest surgeon in the world suddenly became the slowest in December 1846
  • Smelly drains inspired a treatment that has saved millions of lives

The Techniquest theatre will become a Victorian operating theatre, and your pupils will learn all about these developments and many more.

I wonder if any of your pupils will be brave enough to volunteer to help with any of the demos?
