Florence, KY - Anden Solutions is working with the Center for Educational Technologies at the Wheeling Jesuit university to develop a Live Simulation called CyberSurgeons.
The CyberSurgeons simulation provides an authentic way for high school and college students to apply science knowledge and skills. To complete the simulation, students become part of the fictional CyberSurgeons remote trauma unit on a mercy ship. The simulated ship is equipped with a high-tech hospital and medical research capabilities, state-of-the-art high-end communications systems, and dedicated satellites to relay information. As the ship travels up the Amazon River, the teams of students will receive alerts from research stations located in ports along the way. In real time the students will diagnose various maladies, recommend treatment, and even submit patients for different medical trials.
