As the pandemic wears on, BC high school students are suffering from a lack of instructional hours, as well as a loss of engagement and enrichment opportunities. In 2019, our department purchased the Anatomage Table, a cutting-edge technology that is the gold standard for anatomy. We want to bring this engaging, interactive digital experience to high school students in Burnaby, Surrey, Vancouver and across BC. There are only five Anatomage Tables in Canada and none in British Columbia. We want to share our knowledge of human anatomy AND this outstanding tool with high school students and teachers across BC, many of whom are looking for extra instructional activities and opportunities for networking during the Pandemic. Our goal is to: To create teaching videos targeting high school students and featuring the Anatomage Table To connect with high school classrooms virtually, for live anatomy teaching workshops and Q&A sessions about educational paths to health professions; and To host a high school anatomy tournament (virtually in 2021, transitioning to in-person tournament for future years
