TTUHSC El Paso to Host In-Person Health Science Workshops for Local Middle School Students

TTUHSC – Medventure for Your Future returns to an in-person learning experience after going virtual in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

On Saturday, Jan. 29, hundreds of sixth-, seventh- and eighth-graders from throughout El Paso County will learn about health science careers during the 11th annual Medventure for Your Future from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The free event, hosted by Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center El Paso, aims to build interest in the health sciences at a young age. Nearly 500 students and parents have registered for this year’s Medventure for Your Future. The one-day event offers hands-on science workshops and teaches parents ways to encourage their children toward the health sciences.

Workshops on Saturday include:

  • “What You Can’t See Can Hurt You” (microscopic items)
  • “Nutrition for Disease Prevention”
  • “Flossy Bossy”

Tours will be held in the Medical Education Building and other buildings on campus.

For the first time, this year’s Medventure for Your Future will feature a DJ for motivational musical fun. There also will be two photo booths to freeze-frame special memories.
