The Anatomy and Physiology summer day camp is designed to stimulate interest and confidence in human anatomy and physiology. Students will engage in hands-on laboratory activities, such as building a human body with clay, learning cause and effect of diseases, and form and function of the human body. Students will participate in visual, auditory, and kinesthetic activities that facilitate learning and long-term knowledge retention. The program will stimulate interest in STEM and health-related fields by using real-life case studies that can be applied to the local region.
