ISCRM takes science roadshow to Mill Creek Middle School

By Heidi Sanders

Scientists and doctors from the Institute for Stem Cell and Regenerative Medicine at the University of Washington brought their labs to the Kent school on March 31 to show students their research.

Students were assigned one of four presentations to attend during their science class period based on their interest. The labs covered topics including, the heart, kidneys, muscles, stem cells and DNA isolation.

In one lab, students could view and touch a human heart and lungs, see how the heart and lungs work through a demonstration using pig organs and see an electrocardiogram at work. Another room featured an experiment where one student, while hooked up to electrodes, could feel his or her muscles move when a classmate, who was also hooked up to electrodes, moved his or her arm muscles.
