Science Department Grants 2018

Project Objective or Need

In advanced research colleges and medical schools, students must have a foundational understanding of the human body to enroll.

Solution

Body Worlds Field Trip 2017:

The Pulse field trip brought students closer to the information that they learn in their anatomy class. It highlighted the different systems, organs, and functions of the human body by exposing real human tissues that have been preserved. This STEM field trip may have encouraged more NHHS students to pursue a science when they go to college. 

Rutgers Rutgers University  Cadaver Lab Public Outreach Program 2018:

High school students gained entry into the Rutgers University Cadaver Lab. Inside of the lab, they had a Rutgers University lab tech walk them through the different systems of the body on two different dissected human cadavers. The students were given exposure to lab materials that North does not have.

Testimonials

At the Body Worlds: Pulse exhibit I was able to witness everything we have learned this year in Anatomy class in a tangible form. It increased my appreciation for the human body and how unique and intricate beings we are. I thought it was amazing and impressive exhibit.

Learning about the body in a classroom setting was awesome, but be able to physically see the part of the human body that I had learned about was an absolutely astonishing experience. This field trip made me more excited to study nursing next year.
