The Project Lead The Way (PLTW) class is a series of four classes taken each year of high school. The second class, Human Body Systems, performs several dissections, such as the kidney dissection. During the urinary system unit, students take part in a real pig kidney dissection to learn and explore the kidney in greater detail.
