ScienZminds engineers build armies of robots every day, but they don’t pose much danger to humanity—even children can control them. Which they do. Using Lego kits, sensors, motors, and age-appropriate programming software, elementary- and middle-school students fashion bots that interact with the world around them and carry out instructions. Beyond the robots, ScienZminds’ educators lead several other classes that get kids excited about science, math, technology, and engineering. For instance, an electronics course uses circuit boards to build devices including an organ that reacts to light and a lie detector to help figure out which parent really ate the Halloween candy.
Center for Vein Restoration has recruited a staff of highly accredited surgeons and licensed medical staffers across 21 locations in Maryland, Washington, D.C., northern Virginia, and western Michigan, all focused on offering minimally invasive, same-day outpatient clinical solutions that target varicose veins and spider veins. Board-certified doctors on staff are trained to treat patients who suffer from leg pain and other symptoms of varicose veins. While spider veins—which are typically a cosmetic blight—may be treated with sclerotherapy, varicose veins often require a more involved treatment, such as laser ablation—an outpatient surgical procedure. Aiming to make treatments as minimally invasive as possible, the doctors on staff can also prescribe lifestyle changes for less serious cases, which may include following exercise and nutrition plans or wearing compression stockings.
Dr. Lida M. Vargas and her colleagues at Virginia Dental Group perform standard cleanings, restorations, and advanced oral surgery with the help of some special tools. They use modern diagnostic equipment such as digital x-rays and a Cone Beam Computed Tomograph, which creates a 3-D image of the mouth and head. These tools aid the dentists before they perform each procedure. For cosmetic dentistry, the doctors fire up a CEREC machine, which allows them to create all-porcelain crowns, onlays, and collectible figurines directly in the office.
Recharge Sports Injury Center's licensed chiropractors aim to destroy everyday aches and particular pain by seeking out their root sources in the spine and its network of nerves. Structural analysis of musculoskeletal systems through x-rays, exams, and consultations informs classic, hands-on chiropractic adjustments as well as a host of newer therapies: cold lasers, electrical impulses, and ultrasound waves can all target tissue on the cellular level to prompt microscopic healing. In addition to sports-therapy specialists, general chiropractic pros, and a peppy skeleton mascot, the Recharge staff also boasts a dedicated nutritionist and weight-loss counselor.
