Vital Signs: Is there a Doctor in the House?
This program will give budding medical students a general understanding of human anatomy through hands-on explorations of the heart, blood, bones and muscles! Participants will also engage in a fun and challenging bioengineering project that will allow them to apply engineering principles and practices to the structure and function of the human body.
BioSleuths: What’s it all about?
This program is for budding biologists who want to learn more about the world around them and the creatures within it. From bees to butterflies, to flowers and trees, to cricket chirps and bird songs, students will be immersed in hands-on exploration, and “buzzing” with excitement!
Students will be exploring insects and plants, and their interactions. We want our BioSleuths to use their problem solving and observing skills while exploring the natural ecosystems that exist everywhere – even in our own backyards. For example, many plants depend on foraging insects for pollination.
