Humboldt elementary students will have the chance to explore the human body from the intricacies of the cardiovascular system to the nervous system at Humboldt Collegiate Institute’s Health and Anatomy Symposium on December 13. HCI’s Grade 11 Health Sciences class organized the symposium to spark the curiosity of students of all ages. 

Grades 5 to 8 students from Humboldt Public, St. Augustine, and St. Dominic schools will explore the interactive displays, models, and hands-on activities showcasing 24 different human body systems at the event from 9:30 to 11:30 am in HCI’s common area. 

“We're excited to share our passion for health and anatomy with students from different schools,” said Karen Hannah, HCI’s Health Science teacher. “This symposium is not just about learning; it's about making education accessible, enjoyable, and inspiring for everyone.”

Students can expect to explore the displays at their own pace and engage with Grade 11 students. 

“We are a bit nervous about our displays and presentations, but we are really excited about the kids taking part in each of the activities we've planned,” said one Grade 11 student.

The Health and Anatomy Symposium will provide a unique opportunity for students to connect and learn together, and it promises to be both informative and a whole lot of fun.
