Dissection in biology provides a hands-on education above and beyond reading a textbook. By seeing, touching and exploring different organs, muscles and tissues inside an animal and seeing how they work together allows you to really understand your own body and appreciate the amazing world around us.

Many doctors, surgeons and veterinarians report that their first fascination with the body started with a biology dissection class.
