Lutana Haan, MHS, RRT, RPSGT, faculty in the Department of Respiratory Care, joined four other Boise State faculty members in presenting “Showcase for Learning” workshops to the Capital Scholars students and their parents during the 9th annual Capital Scholars program. Haan presented “Bringing Learning to Life,” which taught participants about how simulation with high fidelity manikins can help prepare students for real world experiences in health care.
More than 1,500 Idaho high school juniors were notified that they were identified as Boise State Capital Scholars. More than 100 of the students, along with their parents or guardians, from around the state traveled to Boise State’s campus to participate in the program.
Capital Scholars are Idaho high school juniors who rank in the top 10 percent of their high school classes. These students will have the opportunity to submit an essay to compete for a $5,000 renewable scholarship to Boise State, with second- and third-place finishers receiving a $3,000 and $1,500 renewable award, respectively. Additionally, all program attendees received a one-time $500 textbook scholarship for use at Boise State.
The “Showcase for Learning” workshops, along with other workshops on academic enrichment and a campus tour, highlighted Boise State’s teaching, research, and culture. The activities culminated in a dinner and awards banquet to recognize the high school juniors’ achievements as 2013 Boise State Capital Scholars.
