Description

Summer STEM Camp at Jump Simulation will provide students the opportunity to become fully immersed in the different areas of STEM, specifically pertaining to health care, through participation in five, half-day sessions, beginning July 23, 2018. The five session topics include CPR Certification,  Health Care Engineering, Creative Services & Technology in Health Care, Neuroscience Anatomy Lab and Emergency Medical Services (EMS): Life in the Fast Lane.  See below to view session descriptions. 

Total cost for this course is $295 per registrant.
 
CPR CERTIFICATION
Students will receive Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) training that follows the American Heart Association’s set guidelines.
 
This session will give student participants the opportunity to: 
-Understand the basics of CPR and what must be done to perform CPR in an effort to save a life 
-Utilize actual adult and pediatric CPR manikins for training purposes
 

HEALTH CARE ENGINEERING 
Students will gain an understanding of both the classic and unconventional fields of engineering they can enter and be exposed to opportunities present in today’s industry from Jump Simulation Bioengineers. 
 
During this session, students will: 
-Learn how engineering is used in the healthcare system 
-Gain understanding of multiple engineering concepts 
-Learn what the bioengineers do at Jump
-Have hands on participation in engineering projects 
 

APPLICATIONS OF DIGITAL MEDIA, DESIGN AND TECHNOLOGY IN HEALTHCARE
Students will learn about a variety of topics related to creativity and technology within a health care environment and also how low-cost technology is helping to shape the future in the field of health care. 
 
Subjects will include: 
-Video Production 
-Photography 
-Graphic Design 
-Animation 
-Visual Problem Solving and Storytelling in Biomedicine
 

NEUROSCIENCE ANATOMY LAB
Students will acquire knowledge about the basic structures of the brain and nervous system, as well as receive a brief overview of how the individual parts work and cooperate to contribute to how we understand and interact with the world around us in our daily activities. 
 
Students will have the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the three pound universe within our skulls through: 
-Dissection Activities 
-Experiments 
-Testing of Sensory Illusions 
 

EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES (EMS): LIFE IN THE FAST LANE
Students will learn about the different roles that EMS providers play in health care systems today by participating in simulations that will take place in Jump Simulation’s Virtual Hospital Unit and Regional Transport Center. 
 
Students will have the opportunity to: 
-Serve the role of an EMS provider in a simulated environment 
-Interact and engage with Jump Simulation’s manikins while providing emergency medical care as they simulate transport to the hospital by ambulance 
-Gain hands on experience with technology and equipment used by paramedics

We reserve the right to cancel/reschedule any course that does not meet a minimum number of registrants.  In the event of a cancellation, we will notify all registrants at least 7 days in advance of the course.
