Miami Science Museum

José Martí MAST was selected to pilot a live virtual surgery field trip. Students first received instruction on the terms and procedures that were going to be used during the trigger-finger repair. Students were able to engage in a question and answer dialogue before, during and after the surgery with the surgeon. Some students did not realize the extent of the surgery and had to be excused.

Skip Urichhio, curator of living collections, explained the various research that is being conducted at the museum ranging from coral reefs to predatory birds. As part of his presentation, the scientific process was discussed along with its real world application. The presentation concluded with a virtual tour of the new science complex along with the innovations in design that have been implemented at the museum park.

The Smithsonian hosted a National Youth Summit on October 17, 2012. The focus of this summit was contemporary environmental issues and the legacy from the Dust Bowl. MAST students and students from around the country participated in the summit via video/web conference.
