Science Week – Day 1

Southam College is hosting Science Week again this year and the scientific festivities started off with some gruesome animal dissections.

Mr Eltringham kicked off the activities by operating on a pig’s head. The students all got the chance to look inside the bisected head at its internal structure and feel the pig’s brains.

Mr Etheridge also showed everyone how to dissect mice and extract their vital organs. The students who were brave enough had a go themselves, as you can see from the pictures. The mice will not go to waste however as they will be fed to the snakes in tomorrow’s animal handling session.

There are more Science activities every day this week at lunchtime and everyone is welcome to join in, see the timetable for more info.
