The hip bone’s connected to the thigh bone. That’s what over 170 fifth-grade students from Dubuque schools may be singing after a day at Clarke College learning about how the body works. Clarke will host a Human Body Bee on Friday, March 31, from 9:15 a.m.-1:35 p.m. on the Clarke campus.
The day will include interactive sessions from a variety of Clarke’s academic departments, including art, biology, business, chemistry, drama, education, nursing and physical therapy.
The sessions will use various hands-on activities to teach the students about a variety of human-body topics, including: human organs, how to start an IV and take blood pressure, muscles and electrical stimulation, bone fractures, chemistry of digestion, the Americans with Disabilities Act and its affect on those with disabilities, and movement and drawing of the body.
Media are invited to cover this event. For more information, contact the Clarke College Public Relations Office at (563)588-6318.
