Event Details

February is Heart Month! Drexel University College of Medicine first-year medical students will be facilitating interactive sessions every Saturday in February in the Reading Science Center’s “Curious in the Classroom.”

Learn about blood with engaging activities! Families can participate in a Synthetic Blood Typing Activity and examine blood disorders through preserved blood smears under microscopes. Build a model of a Hematocrit Tube (used to measure volume percentage of red blood cells) and understand the proportions of red and white blood cells.

This month, there’s something new each weekend! Check out our Events page for the full lineup!
