STEM Saturday - Mini Med School for Beginners (6th - 8th Grade)

STEM Mini Med School for Beginners will provide attendees with a glimpse of what medical students learn about the human body at the most fundamental level. The course has been designed to encourage middle school aged students to consider an educational pathway to the medical fields by giving learners an introspective look at all 11 systems of the human body. This one day, hands-on learning opportunity involves brief lectures followed by interactive sessions that include dissecting of the anatomy and testing the physiology in laboratory and clinical scenarios at a world-class medical simulation center. The course will also motivate learners to take an introspective look at their own health by using clinical tools and real human and animal specimens to discover what’s happening in their own body to understand the importance of making healthy choices.

STEM Saturday - Electronics in Medicine (9th -12th Grade)

Electronics are used by everyone every single day and the world of medicine is no different. From sensors, to pumps, to LEDs, electronics have become a cornerstone in the healthcare setting. But how do these devices work? How can we design them? What can we use to test them? Begin to answer these questions and more in this class which teaches the basics of electricity, circuit design and programming all with the help of Arduino.
