Every summer PBA hosts a variety of camps. Summer 2016 saw a “Gross Science Camp” for grades K-5. Several of our nursing students helped out one day and taught the campers some important health lessons while also doing some “gross” things like making “mucous” (aka slime).

Daphney Courage, Dainelle Wilson, Bethany Valdes and Danay Rodriguez engage the students with energy and enthusiasm as they explain how blood carries oxygen throughout the body, the importance of washing your hands well, how germs are spread by sneezes and coughs, what an x-ray of a broken bone looks like, and how exercise affects your heart rate.
