KIDS TO THE RESCUE Grades: 4th-6th

  • Workshop Leads: Jyoti Vyas Registered Nurse
  • Workshop Description: In this workshop students will learn basic human physiology, healthcare roles, CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation), and basic first aid skills. The class uses hands-on experience as you will work with stethoscopes, CPR mannequins, bandages, splints, “blood,” and more. The class is perfect if you’re interested in a career in health science or just learning invaluable, lifesaving skills. .
  • Subjects covered: Basic Human anatomy/physiology, health sciences, chemistry, physics, and life-saving skills.
