On November 14 our Healers of Tomorrow explored concepts in tech and medicine. We first flexed our brains by building functioning cranes out of nothing but a cardboard box, string, and tape. This was a real challenge but as a team, we were successful! Then we learned about how technology impacts many aspects of medicine, including cutting edge developments in creating prosthetic limbs and artificial hearts. For each of these technologies we asked ourselves-- what materials would you need? What do you care about in creating this tool? And once you make it, how do you know it's working? Next time you read about a new device in health, ask yourself these questions and you may be surprised by the answers :)
Thank you to Mr. and Dr. Barnes for leading our awesome class this week! We loved having you.
In Peace and Health,
