Gifted and Talented Workshops at the Museum

The gifted and talented program at The Health Museum consists of day-long courses that provide challenging, hands-on learning experiences. These workshops promote creativity and critical thinking, while also allowing students to explore topics not typically covered in school. The cost for each weekend workshop is $120.

Courses are for students ages 10-13 and from 10:00 am-3:00 pm each Saturday.

Workshop Schedule

Trauma Nurse for a Day

Did you know that by 2030 nursing will be one of the most sought-after medical careers? Experience a day in one of the most versatile and fast paced medical careers. Students will learn basic patient assessments, critical thinking, and bedside manner through an interactive case study.

Ophthalmologist for a Day

In Optometrist for a Day, students measure their own eyesight and complete a cow eye dissection among many other exciting activities. They will learn about technologies to enhance vision and how engineers play an important role in the development of these technologies.

Neuroscientist for a Day

Despite thousands of years of documented study, the nervous system still holds some of the greatest unanswered questions in science. How are memories made? How does the brain communicate with the rest of the body? What are dreams and where do they originate within the brain? Around the globe, neuroscientists work together to find answers to these questions, as well as others. In this course, you will learn the basics of brain anatomy through a hands-on dissection from the perspective of a neuroscientist, model how the nervous system communicates, and perform memory experiments similar to those used in neuroscience laboratories. These hands-on activities will be accompanied by other experiments, as well as lectures and videos.
