POWER-IT students will learn ICT through multimedia design, gaming and animation software–3D Adobe and Lightwave. They will participate in e-learning experiences using Web 2.0 and through the creation of webpages, podcasts, and blogs. Under the leadership of Dr. Byron Ford, a renowned neuroscientist at the Morehouse School of Medicine (MSM) Neuroscience Institute (NI), POWER-IT students will engage in hands-on skills training to include: Genechip probe arrays for Genechip expression analysis, real time measurements of polymerase chain reactions (PCR) and genetic reporter systems.
POWER-IT offers high-school students experiences to increase their skills, career knowledge, and participation in neuroscience and information communication technologies. The POWER-IT model is based on evidence that immersion experiences and access to business professionals, entrepreneurs, scientists, undergraduate mentors, and research experiences is an effective approach towards increasing students’ future science and ICT success. Students work alongside neuroscientists at the Morehouse School of Medicine Neuroscience Institute where they learn about Imagining-Microarray and Informatics Research and learn how researchers use information technology to do hypothesis-driven neuroscience research. The major content areas of POWER-IT are: ICT with an emphasis on multimedia, communication, research and biology with an emphasis on neuroscience.
60 students from high schools located across metro-Atlanta school districts are enrolled in the POWER-IT program. POWER-IT is a National Science Funded program located at the Morehouse School of Medicine Department of Medical Education.
