Students will discover the fascinating anatomy of sheep's heart and lungs in this hands-on dissection workshop.
Discover the fascinating anatomy of sheep lungs and hearts in this hands-on dissection workshop.
Experience what these organs actually look and feel like. Learn how these organs are adapted to fulfil their role in the mammalian body and how pathologists can learn about the impact of disease by carrying out dissections.
In this workshop students will be guided by a trained member of staff through the stages of dissecting a sheep’s heart and will see a live demonstration of a sheep lung dissection.

What other teachers say...
“The pupils in the workshop enjoyed the opportunity for hands on dissection work (which we aren’t able to do at school) – this leads nicely into my next topics on digestions and respiration!”
