Heart Dissection

The Heart Dissection Module is KIMSeattle’s most popular and long-standing program. While the highlight is a full pig heart dissection with cutting-edge medical device demos – this module also includes instruction paired with activities about: heart disease and relevance to their current age, types of exercise and sugar intake, and the sequence of blood flow through the heart. A strong focus throughout the program is exposure to a breadth of future career options.

Program goals are to: 1) teach the anatomy and physiology of the heart, 2) provide an authentic laboratory experience, and 3) expose students to related careers not typically recognized.

This module is offered as a three-hour field trip to our laboratory, or can be done as outreach in a classroom during a 90 minute block. The program is appropriate for elementary, middle school and high school age students.
