St. Mary’s students get robotics training from Saint Francis surgeons

Saint Francis Center for Robotic Surgery recently teamed up with St. Mary’s Episcopal School to show its high school robotics students how the center harnesses robotic-assisted technology for better patient outcomes. 

Meagan Michael, the STEM teacher who launched St. Mary’s robotics program in 2017, said a visit to the hospital was the perfect opportunity for her students to see how what they learn in her classroom can be applied in the real world. 

“The girls were able to see how this technology is important not just for the patient, but also for the physicians,” Michael said.
