Orthopedic Vanishing Act

Cedar Crest High School

At Temple University, Dr. Peter Lelkes is developing an innovative polymer screw that will slowly dissolve once implanted inside the human body. This will greatly reduce the patient’s healing time by cutting out the need for a second surgery.

Produced by Zoe Shay and Taylor Laliberte at Cedar Crest High School in Lebanon, Pennsylvania. Instruction provided by SRL Connected Educator Chris Schwalm.
