Dissecting Your Way to Understanding Anatomy, California, 9-10

Wouldn’t it be great if we could unzip our skin and take a quick peek inside our body? For practical reasons we will instead take a look inside other organisms such as squid, shrimp, clams, frogs, mice, chickens, sheep and pigs. By dissecting each organism and understanding its environment, we will learn why humans and animals are the way they are. We will touch and feel organs such as hearts, brains and eyes and learn about their particular function. By the end of the week, you'll be an expert on many of the key organs and their functions - you will even be ready to perform a medical exam!
