Honors Anatomy students will have the chance to experiment with dead bodies on May 15. Students will be on a school field trip to University of Chicago to sum up their year of learning what nerves, muscles, and bones make up the human body.

“It culminates all of our units together, the experience is different every year,” Jennifer Hawkins, Anatomy teacher said. “It’s a good end of the year activity.”

Besides having the opportunity to see six to eight cadavers up close, students will also have the chance to work with health professionals in testing maximal aerobic capacity, endurance, and body fat, according to Hawkins.

“[The researchers] use a treadmill and they start with warm up and then irregular pace and increase incline and speed to your max,” Hawkins said. “There’s a bunch of numbers they go over with the students.”

The class will split up into two groups and one group will go to cadavers while one group will go to the VO2 max test, and then switch before eating outside and heading home.
