Hundreds of High School Students Compete at First-Ever Anatomage Anatomy Challenge
SAN JOSE, Calif., June 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/– Anatomage recently had the opportunity to partner with the AACI (American Academic Competition Institute) and host its first interactive anatomy challenge! Hundreds of students from across California, Nevada, Kansas, and Texas competed in the sports medicine competition held at California State University Northridge (CSUN). Students from the winning team have the opportunity to intern at Anatomage over the summer.
The Anatomage Anatomy Challenge was the special event of the regional competition. Competing teams tested their knowledge of lower limb anatomy directly on the Table! The series of timed trivia questions were designed to their anatomy knowledge in a unique and interactive way. Students worked together to correctly identify as many structures as they could before time was up. After the open round, the top 3 teams moved on to the final challenge. A huge congratulations to the winning team from La Cañada High School!
“The Anatomage Anatomy Challenge was definitely the highlight of my day at the Sports Medicine Competition at CSUN this year! It was an absolute adrenaline rush to watch the team of five [La Cañada High School] students compete and test their knowledge of the anatomical structures on this powerful learning tool. I’m extremely proud of my team and grateful for those who sponsored and hosted this wonderful educational event for high school students,” said Kim Crosby, a teacher from La Cañada.
Anatomage is hoping to provide high school students with more opportunities to compete in anatomy events like this in the future. The goal is to give students the chance to engage with anatomy in a new and dynamic way.
“We are very happy to see high school students so enthusiastic about human anatomy. During the final round, there was a big crowd cheering and roaring as the finalists progressed through the quizzes one by one. This was very exciting for us! As someone in the education industry, it was very nice to see students motivated to learn medical knowledge and compete while enjoying it like a sports event. We would like to continue events like this in the future,” said Jack Choi, CEO of Anatomage.
