Using The Gift Cards

My students need latex gloves and dissection pans to do dissections...and the craftsman is only as good as their equipment.

My Students

Dissection specimens are expensive, and they can only be used once. It makes sense to maximize the effectiveness of their use by making sure that all of the correct materials are supplied.

Our students are motivated and excited young people.

Their first dissection, however, may be met with a bit of trepidation. Things can be a bit intimidating, so we want to make sure that they have everything that they need, so they can simply focus on the job at hand.

My Project

If a student is a bit awed by the first confrontation with a preserved specimen, the gloves offer a psychological barrier as well as a physical one. Beautiful new trays will not only make the experience seem more clean and surgical, but it will also assure that no fluids leak out and traumatize the students.

It is a medical biology class, so dissection is a good learning tool for anatomical and physiological topics...but it is also fun for the students because it is similar to performing surgical techniques like they may have been inspired by previously.
