Vet Team in a Box

“The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.” 

Vet Team in a Box

A science lesson for SQA Higher Biology

This box aims to provide students with an insight into the different roles involved when working in the Veterinary industry, including veterinary scientists and nurses. 

 

The box allows students to work through a scenario involving a vet team, a farmer and their herd of cows. The session also aims to provide young people with a chance to develop other skills, including critical thinking, team work and arithmetic skills to support the vet team in a real-life scenario.

 

 

Vet Team in a Box has been developed in collaboration with the University of Liverpool School of Veterinary Science, the Widening Participation Vet Schools Network and ManyPets.
