The results are in! Cleveland Clinic's Civic Education Department wrapped up this year's Adventures in Health Science and MedicineSM (AHSMSM) connected learning program with the online Innovation Challenge. Putting their creativity to the test, the students participating in this year’s AHSMsm program battled it out as two middle schools triumphed with the best innovation.
The Innovation Challenge encourages students to develop an innovative product in response to a real-life health issue affecting millions of adolescents each year. The students then present their innovations to their peers in an online webinar.
This year, AHSMsm Innovator teams from Warrensville Heights Middle School, General Johnnie Wilson Middle School, LaMuth Middle School, Strongsville Middle School and St. Mary School Chardon participated as both presenters and judges, using a rubric to score their peers’ presentations on originality, innovative thinking, and feasibility.  

The students voted for their favorite innovations using an online poll, and two winners emerged
with the highest scores.  Warrensville Heights

The Adventures in Health Science and Medicinesm program is a series of connected learning experiences designed to promote learning about health science and medical professions for middle school students. 

The AHSMsm program will be offered again in spring, 2018. For more information, contact Tom Miller at millert14@ccf.org or visit the AHSMsm web page.
