Carnegie Science Center Science on the Road Visits HMS
6th grade health students have completed the first Dream Flight Adventure Mission at HMS. These students completed the Pandemic Mission as well as the Pandemic Mission Ops STEAM Classroom activities.
While working in Mission Ops, the Carnegie Science Center supported our Curriculum with their "Anatomy Adventure" Science on the Road exhibits. These hands on activities directly connected the content covered in health class to the content learned in the Pandemic Mission.
While participating in the Pandemic Mission, health students embarked on a journey to save a sick delegate and restore peace between two nations. They had to locate viruses in the sick delegate's body systems and stop them from spreading.
BWSD Alumna Returns to Help Students Complete Operation Rx
As an extension of the Pandemic Mission, some 6th grade students had the opportunity to extend their experience in the Mission Ops lab. Baldwin grad and Duquesne Pharmacy student, Natalie Turin, will be hosting a special mission in the Mission Ops room. Operation Rx is a unit Natalie designed herself to help promote the medical sciences and provide students with an understanding of the work put into diagnosing and treating patients with medical conditions. This health enrichment mission will use topics like body systems, equations, conversions, and scientific properties.
Students are working the midnight shift as pharmacists at J. E. Harrison Community Hospital. The attending physician, Dr. Sandra Cheeks, who accompanies the students on all medical rounds and who signs off on all orders has been on vacation in Texas all week. The students had expected her back and became concerned when she did not show up at the hospital. Suddenly, they receive an URGENT page to dial 274. Dr. Cheeks called saying her flight has been delayed and she will not be back tonight. A new patient with a complicated case is on the way to the hospital. The students must fly solo and handle the patient's care.
