SCMH Game Time

SCMH Game Time

It has been a while since September’s Salsa Dancing session which was led wonderfully entertainingly and incredibly patient Dr Eline Huethorst and Angelina Kancheva.

On the 25th of October, the second game time social was held. This was a test of gaming skills. Led by Prof Craig Daly and Dr Kenneth Watterson who have developed an educational game which was played at the Game Time. There were two different versions of the game, one which needed Pharmacology knowledge and one that did not.

Both games were well received and much laughter while playing the games.

All SCMH social events are open to all staff and students and are held monthly.

Here is a list of the upcoming socials.

  • Christmas Quiz with Dr Scott MacKenzie - Friday 15th December  
  • Burns night - January TBC
  • Salsa dancing with Eline and Angelina - February TBC
