Looking science in the eye

Jan. 23, 2017 | Mrs. Vanier-Hartley's Form IV Science and Technology students rolled up their sleeves and looked deep into eyeballs - cow eyeballs.
 
Following the sheep's heart earlier in the year, these students performed their second dissection of the class on a fellow mammal's eye. The class is currently learning about the effects of wave motions around the eyes and ears as part of the anatomy chapter, and this experiment allowed them to gain knowledge about the functions of the eye's individual structures and learn how vision is possible. The anatomy of the human eye is more easily shown and understood by using the larger cow eye. Looks like the students preferred the eye to the heart, as the former "splashed a lot" when being cut open!
