Wisconsin state law requires that every school in the state teach a lesson on shaken baby syndrome to students in middle school and high school. Six years ago, Milwaukee Public Schools decided it would augment these units with RealCare Baby Infant Simulators designed to model the syndrome’s brain-damaging effects. The simulated cortex lights up where the young tissue would be damaged, offering a striking lesson for future parents or baby sitters.
‘In Its Infancy’ appears in the September 2015 issue of Milwaukee Magazine.
