Students fill teeth, read x-rays at Rady BYP science camp

This week youth from the inner city, northern communities and across Winnipeg had the chance to fill in teeth, swab cheek cells, test blood pressure and try out all sorts of research and health-related procedures at the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences’ 13th annual Biomedical Youth Program (BYP) camp.

“This makes me think of all the great possibilities I could have,” said Sisler High School student Camilla Opida, 14.

Students participating in the week-long day camp attended workshops ranging from Genetics, where they performed blood typing, to Physiotherapy, where they learned techniques employed in practice. Along with University of Manitoba faculty members, this year’s BYP camp also featured session leaders from the National Microbiology Laboratory (who taught students about screening for AIDS and STIs) and U of M graduate students (who led science experiments at the Inner-City Science Centre at Niji Mahkwa School, a joint project of the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences and Winnipeg School Division.)
