Skinner Students Scope Out CU Medical School

Forty Skinner’s College 4 Y.O.U. Pre-Collegiate Program students visited the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus (CU-AMC) in Aurora as part of their fourth Saturday College Visitation Academy.  The students boarded the bus at Skinner early to travel the students to CU-AMC.  Upon arrival to the Anschutz Medical campus the students were treated to a filling continental breakfast, provided by the staff of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.

During the morning hours, the students participated in various “hands-on” scientific and research-based experiments led by CU-AMC staff and faculty in the ultra-modern lab facilities.   After their research experiences, all the students were treated to a scrumptious pizza lunch provided by CU-AMC’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion.  During their lunch various pre-med minority students sat and ate lunch with Skinner students and shared their experiences as a middle school and high school student and what lessons they have learned and how they prepared themselves to make them a better and successful pre-med student.

Part of the Neighborhood Center’s commitment to our students encouraging STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), the students had a productive and enjoyable daylong visitation.  The College 4 Y.O.U. Pre-Collegiate Program student’s next regularly scheduled visitation will be February 18th as they travel to visit Red Rocks Community College in Golden.
