After School Program: Careers in the Medical Field
Posted by GCC Cougars on 2/26/2019
We had a fascinating afternoon learning about different careers in the medical field while also learning how to take care of our bodies. We learned how to pronounce the word stethoscope and how to properly use one, how to test your reflexes, what is a pulse and how do you measure it, and most importantly, how to correctly wash our hands. The black light that was utilized to show us if we had done a thorough job was an eye-opening experience. We vowed to do a better job at washing our hands to stop the spreading of germs. Thank you UNT Health Science Students for coming out and showing us how interesting a job in healthcare can be as well as how to keep ourselves healthy!
When most people hear about an experiment about volcanoes, they tend to think about a clay sculptured mountain with red food coloring mixtures oozing out of the top. Well, here at George C. Clarke After School we are here to prove that you can do an experiment about volcanoes using fruit. Yes, that is right, fruit!
We raided the refrigerator and found an orange, a lemon, and a lime. We then gathered a few ingredient combinations from dish soap to vinegar to see what would set off a chemical reaction similar to that of a volcano eruption. We came up with several hypothesis and tested our theories. We had some failures which led to more predictions and several successes. The look of amazement on our faces proves how much fun we had preforming this experiment. A big THANK YOU to our TCU Dream Outside the Box volunteers that came out to lead this class.
