Rat Dissection for Science Week

To kick off science week, two year 12 biologists were tasked with explaining the anatomy of a rat, by conducting a rat dissection at lunch. Several questions were asked by younger year groups with a great level of engagement, with most vocalising the fact that a dead rat has an abhorrent repulsive smell. It is a wonder how anyone managed to continue with their lunch after such a beautiful display of the lovely insides of a once alive rodent. We both absolutely loved the opportunity so we are immensely thankful for that and both found it to be a really educational experience.

The anatomy of a rat is actually quite similar and reminiscent in multiple ways to that of a human, personally speaking we both agreed on the fact that the ribs happened to be the ‘coolest’! Once again it was an incredible experience for us and we hope that all who watched also found it fun, different and educational.
