Biology Class -Heart Dissection

There is no substitute for the hands-on learning experience of dissection. It’s qualitatively different from the learning that occurs in a lecture or from a textbook. No video, model, or diagram can replicate the enchantment and wonder of discovery that students feel when they locate actual structures in their own specimens. The hands-on learning gives students an appreciation of the complexity of the heart and the connection between the structures and their function. Using fresh hearts, that are close in size and structure to the ones beating in our own chests, provides one of the most memorable and instructive experiences in the biology classroom.
