On Sunday, April 3rd, the Health Sciences Learning Center’s atrium held 26 “Exploration Stations” whose outreach specialists demonstrated various research techniques and discoveries to the public. The 14th annual UW Science Expeditions had nearly 500 children and their families learn about subjects like vocal cord research, the science of glassblowing, techniques for delivering anesthesia, how samples are gathered in a flu epidemic, how an ECG works, or, could tour the UW Hospital’s Clinical Simulation Program. Ebling Library had its own Station, where children figured out how to put a skeleton together while their parents found out that Ebling is open to the public, and how to find authoritative health care information on the web. And of course, Ebling is open year round for students, faculty, staff and clinicians who may need our database resources, drop in workshops or research and reference assistance. Contact us here.
Here’s a link to this year’s UW Science Expedition. Thanks for SMPH’s Laura Hogan and the Department of Neuroscience’s Andrew Lokuta for taking over the coordination of this event from Ebling’s Micaela Sullivan-Fowler. They did an amazing job.
Thanks to Sam Watson and Stephanie Hendren for staffing Ebling’s Station, it was much appreciated.
