Heart to Heart

Have you ever wondered what your heart looks like? 

Today in Anatomy and Physiology students had the opportunity to dissect pig hearts.  Pig hearts are the closest to human hearts allowing students to take a look at what their own hearts may look like.  Brian Blake had students look at the outside of the heart, and the inside of the heart. 

Students found valves, arteries, and veins of the heart.  Students had a lot of fun discovering what a real heart looks like.  

Thank to Ms. Hartvigsen for always having such amazing hands-on experiences for these students. And Thank you to Mr. Brian Blake for coming to help with this module of learning.

What can you do with a bag of gummy bears, some duct tape, and some skewers?

Well, ALC students in the education class and engineering CAPS class are working together to create a human masterpiece. The students are working with the Gail Halvorsen foundation to create STEM-related learning stations for elementary-aged students. This creation can be used in several ways to teach about motion, wavelengths, and DNA strands. 

The students had a great time building it and showing it off! Great work ALC students. 

Watch for additional NeboCAPS projects with the Gail Halvorsen Foundation in a coordinated effort to get their STEM bus rolling out to students across Utah County!

 Chad is an amazing employee and we are so lucky to have him as part of our ALC Team.
