Junior-Senior High School students of the Science Research Program participated in Northwell Health’s Spark Challenge. The purpose of this virtual experience was to expose high schoolers to the various career opportunities in health care.

Students took part in webinars, interactive presentations, and heard a keynote presentation on leadership and neurosurgery by Dr. David Langer, chairman of the department of neurosurgery at Lenox Hill Hospital and professor of neurosurgery and radiology at Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine.

Students will take this experience and 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.
