Middle school summer camp focuses on health sciences

Over 80 Richland School District middle school students are engaged in the health sciences this week at the Zombie Apocalypse Summer Camp. “The students are learning about healthcare careers while investigating and having fun with our zombie virus mystery,” explains Jon Lobdell, Director of the RSD’s Academy of Health Sciences.

The students will be focusing in on one of five interest areas as the week moves along: emergency operations, medical researcher, outbreak analyst, media specialist, or medical professional.

The culminating activity will be Friday when the campers visit the Washington State University Elson Floyd School of Medicine in Spokane. “The medical school staff will provide interactive activities and talk with students about the many options they have in pursuing health sciences education and careers,” adds Lobdell.
