Neil and Alex Taylor

The children took part in an activity using jelly brains and Maltesers which represented a tumour. They had to use straws to try and remove the ‘tumour’ whilst causing as little damage to the brain as they could. They said that they found it really tricky to get the Tumour out and it made them realise how delicate the brain really is.

“We spoke to the pupils about Brain Tumours and one of the vital treatments is brain surgery. We wanted to show the children how delicate the brains are by allowing them to have a go at brain surgery! Small pieces of chocolate were inserted into jelly shaped liked brains and the children used plastic knives to try to remove the ‘tumours’ without damaging the jelly. We explained to the students that this is a very difficult task for brain surgeons who need to be extremely careful when operating on the brain. Any slight damage to our brains can cause injury affecting our speech or balance or even personality.”
