Da Vinci Science Center Hosting LVHN Robotic Simulation Olympics Qualifier
The Lehigh Valley Health Network continues its search for America’s next top doctors at the Da Vinci Science Center on Wednesday, June 4, 2014, as the Center hosts the final qualification round of the network’s third annual Robotic Simulation Olympics.
The competition challenges students and community members to test their skills on Lehigh Valley Health Network’s robotic simulator – the same da Vinci Surgical training system used by the network’s robotic surgeons. The competition’s junior division is for boys and girls ages 11 and under and its senior division is for students and adults ages 12 and up.
Top-scoring participants from this year’s four qualification rounds will compete in the 2014 Robotic Simulation Olympics Finals on June 28, 2014, at Coca-Cola Park in Allentown, Pa., prior to that evening’s baseball game between the Lehigh Valley IronPigs and the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre RailRiders.
The qualifying round at the Da Vinci Science Center will be held from 3-7 p.m. Entry into the competition is free, but participants must register in advance by phone at 610.402.CARE.
This year’s first qualifying round was held during the Lehigh Valley Science Festival – a production of the Da Vinci Science Center – on March 22, 2014. The Robotic Simulation Olympics was created in 2012 along with the festival’s inception.
