Operating Theatre Live is the brainchild of Samuel Piri a successful science teacher, STEM coordinator, head of science and director of teacher training. Sam studied the anatomy of the human body in Sheffield and later went on to complete his teacher training at the University of Manchester.

During the experience, students had the opportunity to learn about the qualifications and personal qualities needed to pursue a career in the medical profession. This serves to help them make more informed choices about their future.

The day featured an inspirational and informative talk, given by Sam followed by various practical sessions which included learning about anesthesia and 'hands on' dissections of various organs.

An amazing day was had by all, one student said it was a "Thrilling experience, it was worth every second!" Science teacher Dierdre O'Brien commented "This is such a fantastic, once in a lifetime experience for our students"
