Cardiac Craze

Exploring Marine Biology

Member Early Registration begins Jan 29th.
Regular Registration begins Feb 5th.

The cost for each weekend workshop is $120.

Cardiac Craze

Get up close and personal with one very important muscle! Bring a steady hand and an excitement for learning as you explore the structure and function of the heart and cardiovascular system. Hands-on elements include a sheep heart dissection, a chance to try your hand at suturing, and an opportunity to listen to and identify heart sounds with your very own stethoscope on SynDaver, a medical simulator that has been seen on Mythbusters and Grey’s Anatomy. The workshop wouldn’t be complete without an opportunity to speak with medical students and flex some mental-muscle during a trivia session.

Inside Marine Biology

Interested in working with real sea life? Probe through oyster shells freshly plucked from Galveston Bay waters and dissect a squid! Students will have a chance to explore estuarine life and shark phylogeny, biology, and ecology during this hands-on sea adventure!

Health and Safety

Students will be divided into groups of 10 or fewer students for the in-person sessions on Saturdays. The sessions will take place in large rooms that allow for adequate distancing. Masks are required for all students and staff.
