Dissecting Fetal Pigs: A Rite of Passage for Biology Students

My students need fetal pigs to see how the parts of the body work together in one model organism.

My Students

Our students attend a small charter school in the Bay Area. They are incredibly passionate, hard-working, funny, and genuinely kind teenagers! They are diverse in many ways: racially, linguistically, and socioeconomically. They come from a variety of educational backgrounds, but all students work to prepare for AP courses as upperclassmen and to be successful in college. As a charter school with a college-preparatory mission, we have incredibly high standards for all of our students, but, unfortunately, we also have limited resources. Please support me in giving my students access to the tools that will prepare them for success in our changing society.

My Project

Students have spent the year learning about the various aspects of life science from natural selection to cells to ecosystems. I would love to end the year with a fetal pig dissection to apply what they have been learning about into a very hands-on experience. As this is not directly a part of the STEM curriculum, the materials need to be fund raised so students can have this experience that is a rite of passage for generations of biology students before them.

Science needs to be seen and experienced.

In addition to giving students another opportunity to work collaboratively with a lab group, the fetal pig dissection is the vehicle for synthesizing a year's worth of learning.
