In Outreach News

Posted by on May 25th, 2016 Posted in: General

High school students interacting with the Anatomage TableOn the afternoon of May 20th, Taubman Health Sciences Library hosted 32 Native American teenagers from all the tribes of Michigan, some located way up north near Houghton. These students had participated in a program coordinated by the UM Center for Educational Outreach for three years and had attended a week in Camp Kinomaage every year. They had seen various areas of our campus previously, and this time they were visiting us at Taubman. They are interested in science and in attending college to study this field further.

Several staff members welcomed the students and the students clustered around the Anatomage Table while its wonders were being demonstrated. Then, the students were shown the rest of the Library, after which they walked a few blocks over to the School of Nursing to tour its Clinical Learning Center.

Toward the end of the hour, Mary Morris from Graduate Library accompanied an Associated Press photographer who wanted to take photos of transformational spaces for a news article, and the high school students interacting with the Anatomage Table evidently presented the perfect picture. (The attached photo was taken by our own student Elise Wescom–thanks, Elise!)

Thank you to everyone who assisted in welcoming these students to a tour of Taubman Health Sciences Library.
