Mercy College of Ohio invites high school students with a love for science to attend Sci Fri on Friday, February 23 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Mercy College’s Toledo campus. Sci Fri is a half-day science event exploring the journey of food through the digestive system. Students will have the opportunity to participate in hands-on activities and experiments involving digestive track dissections and the study of the chemical reactions associated with digestion in Mercy College’s newly renovated science labs. All science activities will be led by experienced science faculty.
Amy Mergen, Director of Enrollment Management at Mercy College of Ohio, explained one of the unique aspects of Sci Fri.
“Participants will work with the new Anatomage Table, a virtual cadaver, that is the most technologically advanced anatomy visualization system on the market,” Mergen said. “The Anatomage Table is unlike anything else available and we are excited for high school students to experience this cutting edge technology.”
While the students are up to their elbows in science, parents will have the chance to attend an information session regarding what to expect as the parents of a college student. Students and parents will come back together for lunch and learn more about their students’ science discoveries.
Biology and the sciences are integral to all programs available at Mercy College of Ohio. Through Sci Fri, students will experience the foundation of the strong healthcare and health science programs available.
Sci Fri is $20 per student and there is no charge for parents. Lunch will be provided to all guests. Space is limited. To register or for more information visit www.mercycollege.edu/scifri or call 419-251-1313.
