MHS Hosts First-Ever Science Slam for High School Students
Milton Hershey School recently hosted a “Science Slam” for high school students who are interested in pursuing careers in scientific fields after graduation. Five Penn State Health Milton S. Hershey Medical Center graduate and pre-doctoral research students presented their scientific research to 30 MHS students in a live, competition format.
After listening to the scientific research, students had the opportunity to ask the presenters questions and submit votes for their favorite presentation.
The goal of the Science Slam was to expand on classroom learning and help students prepare for college by seeing what scientific research looks like in a creative format.
Milton Hershey School’s STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) curriculum exposes students to real-world, project-based learning and empowers them to apply their knowledge, take on new challenges, and achieve postsecondary success.
