Dissection Workshop – Stillborn Piglet
At Nambour State High School
Thursday, 16 October 2014 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM (AEST)
This workshop morning is aimed at secondary school teachers and lab techs and will focus on a stillborn piglet specimen which is suitable to use in teaching any of the body systems core units of the Australian National Curriculum. The workshop will include a hands on dissection as well as an introduction to anatomical colouring-in resources as teaching tools.
With most of the Uni’s closing or downscaling their animal breeding houses it has become very difficult to secure a good supply of rats for dissection. The sensible and ethical alternative is a stillborn piglet from Dissection Connection.
The session will be focused on giving teachers the knowledge and confidence to enrich their lessons, giving lab technicians the tools to assist and support their teaching colleagues with incorporating specimens like these into their lesson plans and, in the long run, engaging students more by enriching their learning.
Each participant will also receive a certificate of participation to include in their professional development dossier.
Don’t miss this opportunity to get your hands on our pound of flesh. I look forward to meeting you ‘in the flesh’ and hope we can deliver a workshop to remember.
