South High School’s Science Research juniors and seniors participated in a virtual field trip to kick off Northwell Health’s Spark Challenge competition. The event began with live keynote speaker Dr. David Langer, who is the chairman of the department of neurosurgery at Lenox Hill Hospital and professor of neurosurgery and radiology at Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine.
Throughout the day, students participated in three separate career discussions, where they learned from experts in the field and took a deeper dive into each specialty. They also develop an infomercial style presentation to highlight a single health career that was presented. Once completed, they will submit their presentation into the Spark Challenge contest in April.
The event concluded with students joining in a question-and-answer session.
