Dangerous Decibels® is a free, school-based program designed to teach 4th through 5th graders the concepts of noise-induced hearing loss prevention.

Connected Rounds is a grade-specific webinar series where students interact with Cleveland Clinic caregivers and complete hands-on activities as they delve deep into a designated health topic.


The Adventures in Health Science and Medicine (AHSM) program is a series of connected learning experiences designed to promote learning about health science and medical professions for middle school students.
Offered via interactive, web conferencing presentations, each hour-long session includes: an ongoing case study, hands-on activities, and collaborative discussions facilitated by Cleveland Clinic caregivers.
The AHSM program culminates with an “Innovation Challenge” where students work with their peers to apply their learning in the development of a new health science or medical innovation.
