Congratulations: WHMS, An Adventures in Health Science and Medicine Program Winner
The results are in! The Cleveland Clinic Civic Education Department wrapped up this year's Adventures in Health Science and Medicine (AHSM) connected learning program with the online Innovation Challenge. Putting their creativity to the test, the students participating in this year’s AHSM program battled it out as two middle schools triumphed with the best innovation.
The Innovation Challenge encourages students to develop an innovative product in response to a real-life health issue affecting millions of adolescents each year. The students then present their innovations to their peers in an online webinar.
This year, AHSM Innovator teams from Cuyahoga, Lorain, Geauga, and Lake County schools participated as both presenters and judges, using a rubric to score their peers’ presentations on originality, innovative thinking, and feasibility. The students voted for their favorite innovations using an online poll, and two winners emerged with the highest scores. Warrensville Heights Middle School (Cuyahoga County) and General Johnnie Wilson Middle School (Lorain County) edged out the competition to win this year's AHSM Innovation Challenge.
The Adventures in Health Science and Medicine program is a series of connected learning experiences designed to promote learning about health science and medical professions for middle school students.
If you are curious about the real-life health issues that the AHSM innovators tackled, be sure to sign your middle school students up for next year's AHSM program. For more information, visit www.clevelandclinic.org/AHSM.
