Teach Health to K-College Students
HOPE stands for Health Occupations Preparatory Education and is an instructional series offered by Science Instruments.
Body Secrets, a program for grades K-5, is aimed at the doctor who is eight years old and the nurse who is six. The two middle school programs, Life Signs Measurements and Physiological Measurements focus on human physiological measurements.
The high school course, Concepts of Biotechnology, follows real medical procedures and incorporates the technologies that extend the senses. Single- or four-channel recordings of physiological data are available to enable students to simulate a cardiac ward of a hospital.
New is TCP (technician preparatory course), which suits a two-year college curriculum or AP high school students. The Science Instruments Co., Baltimore, MD, (800) 229-2114.
