Classroom Snapshot : Biology
The Biology Club visited Wichita State University for a tour of their cadaver lab in the Department of Physical Therapy.
Dr. Lisa Garcia lead the tour. She described the history and background of cadaver dissections in a college setting. TMP-M students were then able to suit up and perform some dissections on the cadavers. They were allowed to examine male and female cadavers of varying ages, as well as, observe spinal cords and brains that had been removed from previous cadavers.
Keri Maricle, Biology Instructor, stated, “Overall, it was a great learning experience for the students and they loved the opportunity.” Chad Meitner, Principal, stated, “It is amazing that they were able to have that level of participation! Truly a college preparatory experience,” when asked about this amazing opportunity students received.
