Rebecca Smith, a representative of the Texas A&M Health Science Center, brought several medical simulators for exhibition through Mr. Gain’s biology classes. At one station students were able to learn about the procedures phlebotomists apply as they draw blood from patients. The medical mobile library has a variety of manikins that allow “hands-on” activities for students.
