The Museum of Human Disease virtual programs use our human pathology specimens to illustrate common disease biology. We focus on senior and junior secondary students as these get the most benefit from the materials we offer. Each video conference has worksheets for before and after the event, helping students to get the most from the on-screen time. Our presenters encourage questions before and during the presentation. This is a unique opportunity to have these specimens “in” your classroom.
Sheep PLUCK Dissection, Our presenter dissects an abattoir sourced sheep, trachea, lung, liver and heart. Using this to guide understanding of the structure and function of these key organs, we then use specimens to illustrate major disease conditions associated with each. Students particularly love the bit where we inflate the lungs with a pump.

Cost: $200. Requires 1 month notice to ensure supply of the Pluck
