How it works
Each Live from the Heart is offered simultaneously to four classrooms around the country who participate in the same program using videoconferencing. Each class can talk to and see the surgical team as well as each other.
Trained Museum educators facilitate the videoconference program. You'll follow our lead and co-facilitate the experience with us. At approximately 9:15 a.m. Central Time, we'll connect to Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, Ill. to watch the surgery.
A few weeks before your program date, we'll send you links to curriculum materials for use in your classroom, including several classroom activities for use before and after the videoconference.
Zoom technology works on most browsers but we recommend that you check Zoom’s website to make sure your device and browser fit the technical specifications. You do not need to download Zoom but you can use the app if you have it. If you have a problem that you think won't be resolved in time, please call us at (773) 947-6798.
Each session is limited to 40 participants (including students and teachers). We encourage schools with more than 40 participants and/or multiple classes to register for additional remote sessions.
