Seniors Dissect Pig Hearts

By | Academic Excellence, High School, IB | No Comments

Riverstone Seniors have recently been studying the anatomy of the heart and the cardiac cycle in their Biology class with Mrs. Cole. Students gain the full experience of working in a biological lab by working with laboratory materials and wearing their personalized lab coats.

Last week, these students were able to dissect pig hearts donated by a local butcher, Meats Royale. Dissection allows for a link between structure and function in parts of the heart as well as a memorable learning experience. Check out the photos below of the students dissecting, exploring, and having plenty of scientific fun!
