Students volunteer at Roy Clark Elementary STEM Night
A group of Tulsa-area children were recently introduced to human anatomy, chemistry, botany and electricity by the OSU-CHS Biomedical Sciences Graduate Student Association and OSU-COM students during Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) Night at Roy Clark Elementary School.
The students learned about static electricity and the chemistry of oil and water. They used a magnifying glass to look at leaves and plant stems. Students also studied anatomy with models of an eye, brain, foot, hand and stomach and examined the differences between healthy and unhealthy hearts and lungs.
The event was organized and hosted by Roy Clark Elementary to increase student interest in STEM fields.
