Full Class Completing Autopsy

Zoey Boswell, Staff Writer

On April 20, 2021 the fourth and final PLTW class, Biomedical Innovations, completed an autopsy on fetal pigs to learn how to complete an autopsy procedure. PLTW students made the Y-incision, examined and weighed all the organs, and returned them exactly as they were. They ended the procedure by suturing the fetal pig back together.
