Information: Making Connections is suitable for students in Years 12 and 13 who are taking Biology and Chemistry at A Level. Making Connections aims to develop an understanding of the Problem Based Learning (PBL) method used at HYMS and raise aspirations of students wishing to stud y medicine. The PBL method encourages students to apply their biology and chemistry knowledge to real life scenarios and develop learning outcomes based on these discoveries. Making Connections is a two part session for students to learn more about the teaching methods at HYMS and to have a go at some bio-practical work in our lab. Session 1: Students are introduced to Problem Based Learning (PBL) at HYMS. Students work through a PBL session with our current undergraduates at HYMS. Students develop their learning outcomes to take away and research in their own time. Session 2: Students attend a session at the HYMS multi-functional laboratory to work on clinical skills linked to the PBL case.
