making doctors

I followed a group of elementary-aged science explorers last week as they learned how science is used in a hospital setting. Talk about hands-on learning. I would've loved this at their age.
Eleven-year-old Marcus Johnson studies the breathing pattern of a mannequin as he and other campers of Science Exploration Academy Camp learn in the School of Nursing Simulation Center at the Texas Tech Health Science Center, Tuesday morning. The camp offers youth an opportunity to learn about all types of science in real life situations. Tuesday, June 30, 2009 (Photo by Geoffrey McAllister/Lubbock Avalanche-Journal)
