Featured Class: Spring Dissection Lab

Dissections: The science skill that kids enjoy and the thing you may not want to do at home!

Middle school students will investigate the comparative anatomy of a variety of organisms through in-class dissections. Students will complete individual and group dissections of organisms from a range of phyla including a sponge, hydra, grasshopper, worm, starfish, and bony fish. Students will examine major systems in each such as digestion and respiration. The class will cover lab safety, practice proper dissection techniques, and maintaining a lab journal. Students will also use microscopes to look at tissue samples.

Dissection Lab is for students in 7th-9th grade. It is an 8-week class that meets on Wednesdays at 3:00 pm starting March 20. Registration for Dissection Lab and other classes online.
