Dear 100 Hour Board,

I'm a middle school science teacher, who is teaching an elective called "dissections" and anatomy.

I was thinking it would be great to take a field trip to a cadaver lab or a place where they do autopsies, something related to anatomy. Is there such a place less than about a half hour away from Springville?

A: Dear Aardvark,

I believe the only place you will find a cadaver lab is at either BYU or UVSC. Cadavers are used for study and research and most likely be found at such educational locations. Contact the Biology departments of either school for more information.

One thing to keep into consideration, a cadaver lab might be too graphic for middle school kids. I didn't see a cadaver until my senior year in eye school.
