|Annual Science Day for children set for March 29|
Fifth- and sixth-grade students are invited to attend the annual Science Day Saturday, March 29, at the School of Medicine and Health Sciences.
The free event is designed to stimulate children's interest in science and features a hands-on approach to learning. It is hosted by the UND chapter of the American Medical Student Association (AMSA). A pre-registration form, available online, www.med.und.edu/publicaffairs/scienceday, can be downloaded, printed, completed and returned as noted on the form. Pre-registration is requested by Friday, March 14.
Participants may choose to attend either the morning session (9 a.m. to noon), with on-site registration beginning at 8:30 a.m., or afternoon session, 1 to 4 p.m., with registration beginning at 12:30 p.m.
Supervised by medical students, activities 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.
Space is limited. The event, offered on a first-come, first-served basis, is held at the UND medical school, 501 N. Columbia Road. Participants should enter through the school's south entrance.
