Vanderbilt Student Volunteers for Science

Vanderbilt student volunteers are also helping children get excited about science in the Hospital School Program at Children's Hospital. A team of 10 volunteers works with patients between the ages of 5-12 years that are not on medical precautions. The experiments include making slime, examining electrical circuits, observing chemical reactions, along with other fun and fascinating lessons that have educational value and connections to real life. The Vanderbilt student volunteers at Children's Hospital as well as patients and their parents are excited to continue learning together.

More information about VSVS, including its 100-plus lessons, can be found on their website at studentorgs.vanderbilt.edu/vsvs/.
