Abstract

Computer controlled electro-mechanical human simulators are fascinating devices for which investigators have sought wide application. Here, we describe the use of a full human simulator to enrich the science lab experiences of high school students. Our intent is to describe the background and facilities of the “Education Lab” at the Pennsylvania State University College of Medicine and to describe in some detail how simulator scenarios were developed for high school students. The students who attended these scenario demonstrations were asked to complete an evaluative questionnaire at the end of the sessions. Their responses gave us insight into their needs, interests, and enthusiasm and are also reported here.
