Dissecting a Heart

Friday 6 March 2020

The dissection of the heart is an observational experiment which is very popular with biology students. This week it was the year ten’s turn to carry out such experiment. Students got the opportunity to put theory into practice by observing, feeling and touching a pig’s heart. This allowed them to understand better the pathway blood takes inside the heart. Some students found this experiment very interesting, others found it challenging but still exciting while others stated that similar activities should be done more often. This group was lucky enough to be the first class to work on the brand new station.
