At the institute, students attended workshops, listened to speakers, and presented their findings in a round-table discussion format to members of the business world, professors, and/or ambassadors to gain a better understanding of world issues relating to food security. Students also received a $500 scholarship to Iowa State and are Borlaug Scholars. Students attended along with their teachers and mentors

Anatomy and Physiology Field Trip

Big image

Justin Johnson's Anatomy and Physiology class traveled to Palmer Chiropractic in Davenport. Chip Morter is the A&P instructor there. Past students of his have held positions as prestigious as head of the CDC. Chip selected typical organs and then exceptional specimens that had directly or indirectly been related to the cause of death. He does an EXCELLENT job telling the stories of the people who'd donated their organs. Students all conducted themselves in an exemplary fashion and received many compliments from Palmer faculty.


"I thought it was very intriguing to see how out of shape these spines were because each spine represents a persons life and every twist and turn of it took time. This shows how much pain people had to go through and how much has been lost to finally get to where we are as a people. It's was just a cool experience in general because we were able to truly get intimate with who we are physically and mentally." - Ruben DeLatorre


"My favorite part of the trip would probably have to be the lab where we looked at different parts of the body. It was a really awesome interactive thing to do, with picking up each and every part on the tables and getting a closer look into what these organs look like and to see what they would look like if they had a disease or anything abnormal. The tour of Palmer was really interesting and the building was amazing. I loved looking at the the original collection of bones that were displayed and found it to be very interesting and really cool. I would recommend this trip for future classes 100%!" -Brittney Greene


"My favorite part of the trip today was the cabinets of bones and vertebrae. The most interesting part of this section was the twisted and deformed vertebrae, as well as the fetal skulls that were very small. It is very interesting how a humans spinal column can get like that and how they can be fixed. Overall, the trip today was interesting and very informative."
-Joe Morrison
