Mobile Teaching Unit

The Mobile Teaching Unit (MTU) is a lorry that expands into an interactive learning centre, which is funded, staffed and administered by the AIMS CETL within the University of Bristol. It provides students with an opportunity to use a range of clinical equipment to take physiological measurements (mainly cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous) and engage with real physiologists. Activities are designed to enrich current topics based on human physiology in the curriculum. Each visit can accommodate up to 150 students.

The Society has committed sponsorship to the MTU since 2010. Over this time it has travelled many miles, visiting schools and festivals around the country with some lucky students winning visits from the MTU as competition prizes for them and their classmates.  

Schools interested in a funded visit from the MTU should register their details on our education website, Understanding Life, for updates on future opportunities.
