    Earlier this year Frederickson Elementary introduced a Movement Pathway in school to give students a chance to refocus their brains, calm themselves, and get a bit of exercise. Click the image above to learn more about the pathway and see how students use it.

    Watch: PCSC students get hi-tech anatomy lesson

     

    Thanks to a grant, the Pierce County Skill Center was recently able to purchase four state-of-the-art Anatomage tables to help students visualize anatomy exactly as they would on a fresh cadaver.
     
    The tables allow students to perform virtual dissections and see every layer and structure of the human body.
     
    Pre-pharmacy teacher Guadencio Merafuentes said his students have been excited to work on the new devices.
     
    "They absolutely love it,” he said. “It brings paper to real life. You're able to take that 2-D coloring worksheet and actually apply it to what you’re learning in class.”
     
    The Skills Center is the only school in the state to have the recommended four-table lab.
     
    Click the image above to watch a video of the Anatomage tables at work.
