[This is a guest blog written for us by Pauline Narvas. We asked her to tell us about the impact that experiencing enterprise in the curriculum has had on her personally.]
Bio: Hi, I’m Pauline! I have a lot of hats but in summary, I am: a Biomedical Sciences student, an old-school blogger, a front-end developer, a former communications intern, a women in STEM advocate, HackMed hackathon organiser and a coding instructor at Code First: Girls.
The Organ Donation Project was a project that made up a small part of my ‘Introduction to Human Anatomy’ module in my second year of my Biomedical Sciences degree. I was put into a group with others in my course, where I then took the role of team leader for the project. My role was to delegate tasks to other team members and think of creative, ‘out-of-the-box’ ideas to engage young students to sign up for the organ donation register, using our anatomical knowledge.
