Junior Medical Camp:  Dissection on Demand

"Biology is Boring?" Not anymore! Experience the "wow-factor" of dissection LIVE through CMNH Distance Learning. Created through our Junior Medical Camp® summer program, each of these engaging experiences are led by a health expert, encouraging students to learn anatomy and physiology while emphasizing their significance to human health and lifestyle choices. While watching the dissection take place, students are challenged with hands-on activities, are allowed many opportunities for questions, and surprised with pop-quiz action to test their critical thinking skills. The brain controls everything that our bodies do while interpreting everything that we experience. How does a 3-pound blob of fatty tissue handle all of this action? During this live dissection of a sheep brain, students will learn anatomy of the brain and the functions of their nervous system. Hands-on activities will include trying out doctor’s physical exam skills, illustrating neurophysiology and nervous system health. We'll discuss some examples of brain evolution in different organisms and strategies to help keep your gray matter in top condition.
