New Skeleton Aids Learning in Animal Science Courses

February 7, 2017

There is a brand new bovine skeleton in Kildee Hall.  The skeleton is used for students to learn the different bones of the cow skeleton.  Students are able to gain hands-on experience by identifying where each bone is located on the skeleton. Veterinarian and Lecturer, Dr. Jessie Juarez says “the bovine skeleton is an excellent teaching aid in the classroom.  It's a interactive way of learning, especially for students that prefer hands-on learning.  The bovine skeleton will be utilized in Animal Science 214L where over 200 students a semester learn domestic animal anatomy and physiology in a lab setting.  Additionally, the skeleton will be used for other academic purposes, such as the academic quadrathalon in the spring" 

Pre-Vet Club and Harmon Teaching helped fund the skeleton.
