HealthExploreTM

Have you ever wanted to explore topics, such as DNA, how our bones and organs work, the importance of being tobacco free or how to have good nutrition habits? You’re in luck!

A program called HealthExploreTM provides you with the opportunity to combine fun, interactive science education with health care career exploration. With demonstrations and hands-on activities, the program is designed to educate you about science and health care.

During each interactive session, you will also meet different health care professionals, who will share with students what they do, where they work and the equipment they use.

Tell your teacher about HealthExploreTM and get a competitive edge before going into high school. 

HealthExploreTM operates through a partnership between the Oklahoma Health Care Workforce Center and Mad Science of Central Oklahoma.
