Brain dissection

The brain is one of the most fascinating and complex organs on the face of the planet! Soon, we will be dissecting this vital organ in a class that will be held in Buena Vista! We will learn about the different parts of the brain and what they do. We will also see how brain trauma could affect the function of other parts of the human body. This will prove to be a very informative and exciting class! Please stay tuned for further details!

Star fish dissection

Did you know that a star fish isn’t actually a fish at all? Can you identify tube feet, madreporite, stone canal, circular canal, lateral canal, digestive cecae, and more? If you were in the star fish dissection class today then you can! We had a wonderful time at the BV library performing this dissection today. Students identified all of the above and more as they opened up the natural world through dissection. Please enjoy the photos from today’s class

The future doctors

On Friday the 24th of August 10 eager students between the ages of 11 and 14 converged on the BV public library. The purpose? To learn about what makes them tick. After learning some really neat things that the heart does and how it does it, the 10 participated in dissecting pig hearts in small groups. Some of the comments were, “I never knew the heart had so many holes,” “this is so cool,” “what does this thing do?”… And much more. Hands on learning is the best way to learn science, hands down! Please enjoy some of the photos from our class
