Lung Dissection's At the ALC

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Thu, 04/21/2022 - 11:02

Students in Anatomy and Physiology were able to dissect lungs. 

The lungs don't look like much just laying on the table, but when inflated they become pink and spongy. 

Students had a great time exploring the lungs, especially blowing the lungs up!   Students also got to see the heart, diaphragm and liver.  This is called a lung pluck. 

Thanks to Brian Blake for bringing in these organs. The students had a great time exploring.  

Thank you to Ms. Hartvigsen for arranging such an intriguing hands- on learning activity for our students.

ATOM, PHOTONS, AND SO MUCH MORE

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Wed, 09/15/2021 - 10:59

Students at the ALC are learning about Atoms, Photons, Isotopes, Electrons, Orbital Sets, Periodic Table of Elements, Chemical Reactions, and the Anatomage table today.  How many neutrons, how many protons?  No one knows until they complete the lab.  Why can a student drop water onto a penny with a micropipette and the water does not spread, and how do I build an atom with snatoms are all questions students answered in this Chemistry lab for Anatomy and Physiology.  On the Anatomage table, students learned how to make cuts on the cadavers to see organs.  These students are showing just how fun Chemistry and dissecting can be.
