Teen Science Café Youth Leadership Team members from the three Gateway Cafe sites, The Academy of Science – St. Louis, Cahokia School of Choice, and the St. Louis Science Center had the opportunity to participate in a Pig Heart Dissection Lab on Tuesday. The lab offered teens from the three leadership teams an opportunity to meet and share ideas for the Teen Science Café events.
Eighteen students participated in the Pig Heart Dissection Lab with Ray Vollmer of the Adventures in Medicine & Science program at Saint Louis University. In state-of-the-art facilities on video monitors at individual stations, students watched Ray demonstrate each step of the dissection in up-close detail and followed his lead.
Youth Leadership Teams did a terrific job on their dissections in this hands-on Adventures in Medicine and Science lab!
