Programs for Elementary School Students

AHEC coordinates a Speakers Bureau of health professionals who are eager to speak to Elementary School students about their careers.

More Elementary School programs are in development, including:

Elementary Professional Development: Some elementary teachers have requested professional development on science content. We are working with the DOE to either assist with creating Reading Wonders science supplements or hosting a Professional Development opportunity. Please let us know if you have any specific requests.

ReaDch Program: We plan to purchase books for the ReaDch program related to heart disease or health careers in general. If you have any suggestions for K-5 books that students love, please let us know.

Wonders of Science and STEM Teacher Professional Development Workshops: We are collaborating with the DOE to assist with purchasing supplies and creating new curriculum. Please contact us if you have ideas for new Science curriculum to supplement the Wonders program, or if you have attended one of the DOE Teacher Professional Workshops and would like to request supplies.
