About this event

Join us to learn how STEM and medicine intersect and form the basis for everything that future doctors, nurses, researchers, and other practitioners do! On day one, you will learn how the body’s structure facilitates movement through bones, muscles, and the nervous system. After a quick dive into testing our nervous system to understand sense and perception, you will venture into forensic anthropology to learn more about how scientists use bone structure to help identify different bones. Work with our model skeleton, and at the end of the day, you will work to solve your first medical case! Do you know what is wrong with patient X? On day two, we will learn about body systems through a virtual dissection. Can you trace the entire digestive system? In the afternoon, we will use our knowledge to try to solve a mystery case. Medicine is more than science; it is also working with people. Day three is all about a variety of skills! Learn the basics of takin ga medical history, CPR, pulse, and respiration counts. Next, learn the science behind standard medical tests such as X-rays, CTs, and MRIs. Using your new-found knowledge, let’s investigate patient Y! Math in medicine? You bet! You will learn how math relates to medicine through hands-on case studies and projects. Use your newfound math skills to help solve interesting medical cases. Medicine is a changing field. On our last day, learn the basics of DNA science and then dive into looking at gene therapies and mRNA science that is changing the world! STEM & Medicine is offered in partnership with Lavner Education. To learn more, visit https://www.lavnercampsandprograms.com.
