Well it had better be a good excursion if you are driving out of town at 5.30 in the morning. And it was!
Six students went to Melbourne last Friday. The morning was spent at the Gene Technology Access Centre (GTAC) using a variety of microscopes. The students took photos of what they saw and entered at least one photo into the ‘Under the Microscope’ photography competition. After lunch, the students toured the Melbourne University anatomical museum. This place is not open to the general public and is where students studying anatomy have access to real human tissue that has been dissected and preserved. No photos were taken out of respect to the donors and their families, but what was seen in there will not be quickly forgotten.
