On March 10th, 2020, the Prairie STEM staff took 40+ High Ability Learners of the Papillion/LaVista middle schools to visit Clarkson College to learn about health care careers. The Clarkson staff taught us how to take x-rays, EKGs, dissect a lamb’s heart, and give injections. Our students were able to diagnose symptoms from a robotic patient with a long list of ailments, learned about what Physical Therapists and health care administration do. We also learned about how diseases are transmitted. Everyone left with a much better understanding of the jobs of medical professionals.
Prairie STEM had a booth at Hutchfest where we demonstrated Bingo, our robot dog extensively. We provided nearly 500 STEM Kits to the community and
