|Annual Science Day set for March 24 at medical school|
Fifth- and sixth-grade students are invited to attend the annual Science Day Saturday, March 24, at the School of Medicine and Health Sciences in Grand Forks.
Offered at no charge, the event features a hands-on approach to learning and is hosted by the UND chapter of the American Medical Student Association (AMSA). Organizers request pre-registrations by March 16.
Participants may choose to attend either the morning session (9 a.m. to noon), with registration beginning at 8:30 a.m., or afternoon session (1 to 4 p.m.), with registration beginning at 12:30 p.m.
Medical student-supervised activities, designed to stimulate children's interest in science, will focus on human health and anatomy, the heart and the importance of exercise, awareness of the dangers of tobacco use, "grossology", medical instruments and how they're used, and various projects that demonstrate scientific principles.
