Hands-On Health: Elementary Students Perform Surgery


Third-graders from Bel Air Elementary visited Trinity Health to get a hands-on experience of what happens in a hospital.

The students rotated through ten stations during the hour-long session.

They performed surgery by removing vegetables from jello and an EKG was done at another station. 

They also learned first-aid, x-rays and nutrition.

Third-grader Oliver Thomas said he wants to be an arm surgeon when he grows up.

“As high schoolers, we get to take these health classes and I feel like little kids don’t get to see it as much, so this is a way to help get younger kids more interested so they know what they want to take when they get to high school,” said Abby Folk. 

Folk volunteered at the event and is a senior at Magic City Campus. 

Students from Hoeven, Longfellow, Sunnyside and Beulah will attend the sessions the rest of the week.
