7.24.23 – Physiology and Biomedical Engineering

Today our students got the chance to learn about digestive system anatomy in the most hands-on way possible – (short of getting a ride on the Magic School Bus…): Fetal Pig Dissections! Students were challenged to map out all the various parts of the digestive system and make connections between how the form/structure of an organ is matched with its function. Students were also able to begin their quest to digest as many interesting facts & trivia on the digestive system as possible… (We were also sure to thank all of the pigs for the noble sacrifice in the name of science.)
