Vital Signs @ Chicago – Tuesday: Sheep Heart Dissection
Day 2 is over, and our daring dissectors have had an in-depth look at the workings of every mammal’s most important organ: the heart! During their exploration, students continued to recognize the relationship between structure and function that is present everywhere in biological structures. One student commented, “Every piece of the organ has a specific job, and everything is efficient!”
The scientists-in-training will continue to explore this connection between structure and function as the week goes on!
