Liberty Science Center's Live from Surgery program offers students a unique opportunity to peer into an operating room and interact with medical experts. This powerful learning experience exposes students to careers in biotechnology and medical science.
Visit to Liberty Science Center Brings IHA Alumna Connection
IHA students viewed a live LVAD/heart transplant surgery in LSC's Interactive 3D Science Theater. They then had a discussion about the Live from Surgery procedure, communicated virtually with the doctors, physically held the instruments viewed on screen, and met Dr. Margarita Camacho, who led the presentation. Students used a 3D robotic surgery simulation and explored the Science Center after the session.
During the discussion part of the program, our students and moderators learned of a fellow IHA alumna in attendance. Tina Bezerra, IHA Class of 1985, asked what school our students attended, after being impressed by all of their amazing questions for Dr. Camacho. "When we told her IHA, she was thrilled to discuss her years at IHA and how fondly she remembers her time here," said Mrs. Kelly Duby Falcon'03, IHA science teacher, who served as a moderator on the trip.
The trip to Liberty Science Center is one of many special opportunities our St. Brigid Society students receive. To learn more about the St. Brigid Society, visit our Advanced Programs and Honor Societies page.
