Students from Harlandale Middle School (HMS) recently had an opportunity to learn about medical careers thanks to professors with the University of the Incarnate Word. Doctors Anita Mosley and Adeola Coker, professors of Pharmacology, visited with members of the Science Corp on October 25. They talked to the kids about density and how the ability to compact medication helps determine how it’s made. The students were also able to use a mortar and pestle to simulate the creation of medication and make a capsule that holds medication.
The Science Corps program is a club for middle schoolers at HMS and Terrell Wells Middle School that helps promote science, technology, engineering and math. The HMS club currently has over 50 members.
