STEAM On Demand kits are available to purchase at anytime and are intended for you to complete on your schedule, at your own speed.  Included in the kit is a link to a pre-recorded dissection lab taught by a clinical anatomist.   

This lesson is designed to introduce your learner to general anatomical structures and dissection skills by use of comparative anatomy of the spiny dogfish shark to humans.  Participants will learn to identify the similarities between seemingly unrelated species like sharks and humans, as well as identifying why their organs are specialized to work differently to allow them to survive in their own environments

Students will develop science skills and concepts that include:

  • Correctly perform safety procedures
  • Handle equipment and materials responsibly
  • Properly listen and follow through with - directions
  • Make careful observation of activities
  • Describe observations
  • Appropriate and responsible disposal of wastes
  • Understand the basic needs of all living organisms to sustain life
  • Systems contribute distinct processes for the organism
  • Organ systems’ dependence on other systems’ interaction
  • Make inferences based on observations

STEAM On Demand labs are a great opportunity for your doctors or scientists to receive hands-on exploration of their favorite STEAM topics in the safety of your home.

Each student will receive an experimenter's toolbox filled with all of the tools and specimens that they'll need to complete an anatomy dissection at home with pre-recorded virtual guidance by a clinical anatomist.  STEAM On Demand requires access to view a prerecorded video link that will be included in the kit.
