?Technology and Your Health? ? A Program for Low Income, Underserved Youth

The YMCA of Greater Pittsburgh proposes to work with the Pitt Science Outreach program this summer (2014) to offer a new 6-week program called ?Technology and Your Health? at 4 of our Ys and at the Homewood-Brushton YWCA. This program?s goal is to interest youth in 4th-6th grade, from low income, underserved areas in (1) learning about science and health, (2)becoming comfortable with the increased use of technology in all aspects of our lives, (3)learning how to access and interpret health information on the web, using National Library of Medicine resources, and (4) learning how to design, test, and analyze scientific questions using information learned from web resources. The hope is that at the end of the 6-week program youth will have a better understanding of how science and technology can positively affect their everyday life, know more about healthy lifestyle choices, and be equipped to find new information on the web at any time using National Library of Medicine resources
