Heart Dissection for Science Club

Science Club is booming thanks to the chance to do cool experiments such as making slime from borax, creating papier mache planets and making elephant toothpaste. But today’s practical was perhaps the best so far, with boys getting the chance to dissect a sheep’s heart.

“In science lessons there is lots of theory so boys don’t get to do practical experiments every week but in science club we can,” says teacher Ms Tripney, pictured with Jakub from Year 7. “There’s more time for boys to ask questions and to have conversations without having to say ‘we’ll come back to that later’.”

Engaging practicals

Science Club for years 7 and 8 is attracting a lot of interest with 18 boys staying behind after school to learn about dissection. “It’s fun but you learn about science things too,” says George, who was able to see the aorta and feel how strong it was. It’s the kind of engaging practical that normally boys can’t do until Year 10.

Jaydon comes to Science Club because it’s fun and he likes to learn new words and discover things he didn’t know before. “But the heart does smell a bit,” he admits. Wisely, before the lesson teacher Ms Hill lets the boys know it was OK to go outside and get a bit of fresh air if they were feeling ‘grossed out’. A few of them took up her suggestion!

Pumped up for science

“We’ve got a lot of Year 7s coming which is great,” says Ms Hill. “And once a few boys are coming they get their friends to come along too. Boys like it because they can just enjoy learning and experimenting without having to worry about drawing diagrams and writing up their experiment.”

After clearing away and disinfecting the tables the boys went home truly pumped up for more science. Science Club is held every Wednesday after school in room 3.08.
