Liberty Science Center Field Trip

Along with chaperones Mrs. Bennett and Mrs. Zanta, the SHS group met Dr. Samara Freidman, a pediatric orthopedic surgeon.  Dr. Freidman presented videos showing three different orthopedic procedures.  The videos showed Dr. Freidman setting and casting a 4 year old's greenstick fracture of the arm, ACL Reconstruction on a 19 year old basketball player, and Open Reduction and Internal Fixture of Monteggia Fracture on a 14 year old cheerleader.  Students were able to ask questions throughout the presentation and many are now convinced that their medical career dream can be a reality.  After the presentation, all were allowed to explore the science center at different exhibits such as "Eat or be Eaten", the touch tunnel, and the fungus maze.
