Third and fourth graders from all around the Minot community made their way to Trinity Hospital this morning to learn a little something about medicine.
It's part of the hospital's week-long event called Hands on Health.
Both educators and those in the medical field hope to inspire children to find an early career path or at least some lifetime goals.
After all, these are not experiences most kids would have in the classroom.
(Mikayla Hild, Dakota Elementary Third Grade Teacher) "Hands on learning is the best way to go. They get to see it, feel it, do it. It's so much more memorable than other field trips like maybe a museum, or some place where they get to look at things and have to be quite. They really enjoy it, and they have fun, and then they go home and tell their families about it, which is always really great."
Hands on Health sessions will continue again tomorrow at 9 a.m. and go through Thursday.
