Wet Mount Lab in Forensic Science

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Wed, 09/22/2021 - 13:37

Have you ever wondered what a bug looks like magnified? Today in Medical Forensics students learned to use microscopes to see just that. 

They learned to use their microscope by looking at bugs.  Wings, legs, bodies, heads, and eyes. 

Bugs were brought in by students and then the students chose which body part they wanted to look at and prepared a slide for the microscope.  The bug was viewed on three different magnifications, and students took pictures and were asked to draw what they saw.

ALC automotive students had the opportunity to travel to the world-famous Bonneville Salt Flats to experience the World of Speed event. They were invited to attend by the UVU transportation technology department who brought their own land speed car (Bombshell Betty) to race out on the salt.
