The human body is a complexly fascinating system.  So why look at it piece by piece?  This year in Biology 12 we’re going to be looking at all of the different things that happen not only within, but to the body.  What happens when you die?  How does diabetes throw everything for a loop?  What happens if you contracted Ebola?  Who are the pioneers of biology? Who are the pioneers of the future?  The field trip to Science World’s Inside Out exhibition was a great place to start.  By exposing all of the different systems though a specialized plastination process, students got to see “real-life” examples of the different systems we will be learning about.  By continuing this learning through guest speakers, watching surgeries and dissections, it is hoped that students get a deeper understanding of who amazing biology can be.
