NGHS students traveled to Fort Collins to the Colorado State University campus where they attended a cadaver lab. Students were able to touch different structures, see a cadaver, and interact with CSU biomedical science students. Students also had the opportunity to meet and visit with a Vet School professor who gave the students a lot of insight into that field of science. In the spring another two trips are planned, so if you missed out, look for additional opportunities to attend again.

Students from NGHS's biomedical sciences program had the opportunity to participate in a community outreach opportunity. Students traveled to the Morgridge Academy a National Jewish to assist 6-8th grade students in their first PBL. NGHS students taught the Morgridge Academy students the anatomy of the hand, using the Anatomy in Clay Learning Systems hands models. They provided assistance in the design of a prosthetic hand using anatomy and physics concepts. On October 22nd, students from the Morgridge Academy traveled to NGHS to present their PBL in front of the authentic panel made up of the same NGHS students. It was a great event and rewarding for both schools.
