On Saturday 10th of March the School of Medicine participated in the University of St Andrews Science Discovery Day 2018 with two science stalls; one on human balance and reaction times and one on human bones and joints. Hands-on interactive demos were used to explore relevant scientific concepts with the audience. The demos included an augmented reality T-shirt, a swing balance box, and human bones with prostheses.  The stalls were well received with excellent feedback from attendees of all ages.
