ATSU students teach high school students about anatomy
ATSU students and the Missouri Area Health Education Centers are teaming up to teach students about science and anatomy.
The hands-on educational opportunity enhances skills and academically prepares high school students that are interested in healthcare careers. The ATSU students provide four different sessions throughout the year. The sessions are taped and then streamed to high schools throughout the area. The high school students are then able to learn about what it takes to dissect specimens and about the human anatomy.
"For the students that are really interested in health careers, this is stuff that they crave. They want to learn as much as they can about anatomy and about science. But it's also good for the students who don't realize that they are interested in a health career and to kind of get exposed to it," said Anna Kaminski of the NEMO Area Health Education Center.
ATSU students and the Missouri Area Health Education Centers are already planning the courses that are scheduled to be held in the upcoming school year.
