Blood, Guts & Biomechanics — A Hands-On Dissection Lab for Adults

Remember how much you loved high school biology class? Er… Want a second chance at biology class? In conjunction with our new traveling exhibition: Built To Survive: Biomechanics, discover the marvels of evolution for yourself in this engaging series of hands-on dissection classes. Bring your favorite lab partner; we will provide the gloves!

This 3-class series is $75/person. This is lab, so you will be paired up with a partner, so find someone you like doing experiments with, or come alone and meet someone new!

Note: Participants must be 18 years old or older. Wet specimens and tools will be provided. Please wear close-toed shoes, as we will be in a laboratory setting.

Dissection Lab 1: Feel the Beat
The mammalian 4-chambered heart is a marvel of evolutionary mechanical function. This guided dissection of a preserved sheep heart is an engaging way to learn about cardiac anatomy, physiology, and coronary diseases. Real human specimens will be displayed for comparison. See how our inflatable sheep lungs and other pulmonary specimens illustrate how breathing really works.

Dissection Lab 2: A Head Case
Think about it: All of our daily activities, decisions, and memories are handled by a 3-pound blob of fatty tissue. During this guided dissection of a preserved sheep brain, you will learn the anatomy of this awesome organ and investigate various functions of the nervous system. You will practice real neurological exam skills and observe some examples of brain evolution in different organisms. We will also examine a variety of skulls from humans and other vertebrates, observing how skulls of newborn humans allow maximum protection coupled with necessary flexibility. Brains require specialized protection, and skull morphology is a fascinating field.

Dissection Lab 3: Animal Autopsy
You might already know that tissue from pigs is used in many medical fields: heart valves, burn and wound repair, and plastic surgery research to name a few. This guided dissection of a fetal pig will illustrate how its internal anatomy matches up closely with that of humans. We will quiz you on organ structure and function throughout the dissection, and discuss habits that can lead to health concerns of specific organs. Our collection of real human specimens will be displayed for comparison.
