The technology used in sonography is different than radiography; ionizing radiation is not used, but instead high frequency sound wave technology is used to capture images. Thanks to a generous grant from the Dunham Foundation in 2011, SciTech Hands On Museum established one of the first STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) based curriculum schools in the country.
High Touch High Tech will be bringing some of their hands-on science experiments for kids to learn from and enjoy. Bob teaches math and science topics to Museum audiences in programs that range from large auditorium shows to intensive lab classes for school groups.
There is a common misconception that being an Ultrasound Tech is a simple procedure in which someone moves a wand-like device around the body, while images are magically captured on a screen. Students and teachers select activities such as demonstrations, Tech Zone – corporate and higher education interactive exhibits, workshops and presentations by cutting-edge experts in science and technology through a conference style approach.
Whether you are searching for ways to get your kid or school into coding, or are a community member interested in topics such as hackathons, the impact of computer science on the economy and on Arizona’s culture, and even technology speed networking for women, the Computer Science & Tech” Track has a number of opportunities to explore these ideas and more.
