We’re excited to be teaming up with STEM Society at the University of Michigan to offer MED Saturday 2021. The purpose of MED Saturday is to expose middle and high school students to inquiry-based learning in the fields of science and math especially those from lower socioeconomic areas. Khuu Foundation is supporting costs for materials and packaging of materials to students for a full day of virtual programming and lessons.
“Thanks to your support, we were able to host an effective program that impacted around 90 middle and high school students. We got to teach them about skills in the medical sciences, and to bring speakers who shared key tips on the road to achieving your goals, and on coping with the challenges/obstacles that are often encountered along the way. We got to do all of this at zero cost to the students, thanks to your support!” – Robert Weinbaum, STEM Society
“Addressing the difficulty of this path along with real students talking about how they manage their life with this path of study was helpful to see and hear. I think it is important for this age group to learn that doing something difficult doesn’t have to mean doom or failure or waste of time. Good things that are hard are worth the effort and time and is part of growing up to have a successful life.”
“All of the speakers were very inspiring and made me realize that I can be the next generation of a doctor. All I have to do is put my mind to it and get the help I need when I need it.”
“Med Saturday was a really good experience. The most meaningful part of Med Saturday was the talk the second doctor gave about how hard the medical field can be but that we can do it. It was really inspiring especially as someone who struggles with mental illness as well.”
“I loved my Med Saturday experience it was really fun to lean new things, and the speakers were really motivating. I also really enjoyed the experiments.”
“Thank you to everyone who helped plan this wonderful event, it is very clear that much work has been put into this event and I am ever so grateful.”
“In middle school and high school, kids, regardless of grades need to have access to this type of programs to help envision a future that maybe didn’t have a familiar face to it before. Thank you for taking time out to inspire young people.”
